Dog owners in Texas are hot under the collar over a proposal that would require them to buy $100,000 insurance for their pooches.

And they've vowed not to roll over and play dead for what they're calling yet another example of needless nanny-state legislation.

House Bill 998, introduced by state Rep. Ruth Jones McClendon, D-Texas, would require owners of unleashed, un-neutered male dogs over 20 pounds to carry a liability insurance policy of at least $100,000. Violations would be classified as a misdemeanor, and punishable by a fine up to $500.

This is the follow up proposal to the banning of aggressive dogs. I can see a sad future where would I have to go through park security to have my dog's privates inspected for missing nuts.
