Animal Laws

According to City Code Section 6-7, It is unlawful for any person to own, keep, have in possession, or harbor any dog which howls, yelps, or barks to the reasonable annoyance of another person. Any person violating this section, who upon first requested by a peace officer, animal control officer, or any city agent to stop or prevent the annoyance, and refuses to comply with the request, will be issued a citation or arrested in accordance with state law and, if the officer deems it necessary to stop the annoyance, may have the dog taken to the city animal shelter. Any dog placed in the animal shelter may be reclaimed by the owner upon payment of the applicable fee, and, if not reclaimed, may be disposed of in the manner provided in Minnesota State Statutes § 343.235.
