8.04.030. Control and fencing

            (1)        It is unlawful for any person owning or having the custody, possession, or control of any livestock to allow, either negligently, recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally, the livestock to run at large in or about a public property or roadway, where such is not permitted by law, or to otherwise permit the animal to be herded, pastured, or to go upon the land of another without permission.

            (2)        All fencing of property where livestock are kept shall be of sufficient construction to prevent the escape of or injury to the animals being confined within the fencing.  The fencing shall be maintained so that no part of such fence, absent extraordinary circumstances, may be broken, damaged, or in any way create the possibility of injury to the confined livestock or to allow the escape thereof.

            (3)        Failure to properly confine any class of livestock shall constitute a violation of this Section.
