Ask a trooper: Animals at large


Fri, Jan 31st, 2014
Posted in All Police Reports

Question: My neighbor has cattle and horses; they are always getting out of their fences - many times onto the roadway. Isn’t there some kind of law requiring animals to be kept more secure than that?

Yes, there are laws. M.S.S. 346.16 says that: “It shall be unlawful for any owner or any person having the control of any such animal to permit the same to run at large in the state.” There are other laws that could apply, but that one seems

to fit what you are talking about more directly.

A fence that is not maintained may allow animals to exit. It is the duty of the owner to up keep their fencing and contain their animals. Livestock and horse on the roadways can be very dangerous, cause crashes and some are tragic. However, most livestock are well contained and if they do get out are retrieved without harm to anyone.

Contact law enforcement if you see livestock, dogs, or other animals on the roadway that have not cleared.
