An Oklahoma lawmaker has proposed allowing animal control to haul students away from class if they bring their fursonas to school.

According to the New York Post, Oklahoma State Rep. Justin Humphrey introduced a bill on Jan. 16 that would ban furries and children who self-identify as animals from public schools.

According to House Bill 3084:

Students who purport to be an imaginary animal or animal species, or who engage in anthropomorphic behavior commonly referred to as furries at school shall not be allowed to participate in school curriculum or activities.

The proposed law would require the offending child's parent or guardian to retrieve them from school.

If unable to do so, according to the bill "animal control services shall be contacted to remove the student."

The bill would go into effect in November if passed. However, according to KOCO 5, of the more than 3,000 proposed bills introduced in 2023, only 350 were made into law.

Humphrey previously argued that his bill would deter children from identifying as animals, even though there is no evidence schoolchildren are "self-identifying as animals."

"If you got an animal coming to school: How about we get them vaccinated? How about we get them neutered and how about we send them to the pound?" Humphrey ranted in a video posted to social media, according to the New York Post.

Humphrey's reason for the bill also stems from a fake rumor that a Michigan school district provided litter boxes to students.

According to NBC, the rumor was perpetuated by Joe Rogan, who claimed on an episode of his podcast that a litter box was installed in a school that a friend's wife works at.

In addition, legislators from the states of Colorado and New Hampshire previously made false claims that school districts were allowing litter boxes on property, according to Education Week.

Reuters has debunked the wild litter box claim, however, reporting that there is "no publicly-available evidence that proves schools are providing litter boxes to self-identified 'furries' anywhere in the U.S."
