DOGS AND CATS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO RUN AT LARGE IN THE VILLAGE
Village Hall is receiving complaints about residents allowing their dogs and cats to run at large through and defecate in private yards and public spaces. Pet owners are reminded of Village Ordinance 90.01 that states…..
“No person who is the owner or has charge of dogs or cats shall permit them to run at large in the public road, highway, street, lane, or alley, or upon unenclosed land, or permit them to go upon any private yard, lot, or enclosure without the consent of the owner of the yard, lot, or enclosure.
Whoever recklessly violates division (A) of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree.”
Owners or keepers of dogs and cats who negligently permit them to run at large is liable for all damages resulting from injury, death, or loss to person or property caused by the animal.
