Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control granted a young girl’s request to house a unicorn in her backyard — as long as she humanely cares for the mythical creature.
The agency even sent a letterheaded reply to girl Madeline, listing all the conditions under which she could keep a unicorn. That is, if she can find one.
“I would like your approval if I may have a unicorn in my garden, if I can find one. Please send me a reply letter,” read Madeline’s Nov. 14 letter to the county, which Animal Care and Control posted on Instagram.
After two weeks, Madeline received a response from the agency’s head, Marcia Mayeda, granting her request.
“Included is a pre-approved unicorn license in case you can find one,” Mayeda wrote.
The department has sent the girl a stuffed unicorn to hold on to until she finds a live unicorn.
The approval came with five conditions, including that any glitter used on the unicorn be biodegradable and non-toxic, and that the unicorn be fed its favorite treat – watermelon – at least once a week.
