Girl, 6, asks county to keep a unicorn in her yard. They said yes, with conditions

Story by Kait Hanson (TODAY, 9 Dec 2022)

When one California girl decided she would like a unicorn for her backyard, the only reasonable solution was to contact the county for permission.

Identified only as Madeline, the girl's handwritten note dated November 14, read, "Dear LA County, I would like your approval if I can have a unicorn in my backyard if I can find one. Please send me a letter in response. —Madeline"

The Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control wasted no time in replying to the young girl's request in a letter dated Nov. 30 titled, "Unicorn Licensing."

"I am pleased to tell you that the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control does license unicorns," the letter read.

But there were conditions. The letter stated:

1. The unicorn must be cared for in compliance with all animal caretaking regulations set forth in Los Angeles County Code Title 10.

2. The unicorn is given regular access to sunlight, moonbeams, and rainbows.

3. The unicorn is fed one of its favorite treats — watermelon — at least once each week.

4. The unicorn's horn must be maintained to be in good health. This requires polishing at least once a month with a soft cloth.

I realize this isn't the kind of news we usually post, but sometimes we just need to read something that will make us smile and realize there is some good out there. Please use the link, because there is more to the story...

This is fantastic.  I love it!  I want a unicorn license too!


I don't have a Unicorn license, but I live in a rural area and so far no one has complained about my small herd... please don't turn me in!

Hey All...🙋‍♀️

Her request is not an unreasonable one at all and I hope she finds one to love and care for!🦄

I have a unicorn in my yard each day but, i confess I have skirted the permit process!... His name is Omelette... He and his brother Scrambles were born behind our house about a year and a half ago… He comes to visit every day and I am honored he has touched my hand a few times with his nose!💕
