this week in bad ideas - how not to enforce tax collection

the swiss village of reconvilier deserves an award for best idea ever {to blow up in one's own face).  they may even be eligible for a darwin award.

what's happening is that people aren't paying the $50 annual dog-tax.  village officials want that money.  so what do they do?  threaten to kill the dogs.

guess who's getting the death threats now?
