Animals Running at Large
It is unlawful for any dog or cat to run at large. A dog or cat is considered running at large if it is not upon the premises of its owner or is not on a leash and under the control of a person physically able to control the animal. All dogs or cats found to be running at large shall be promptly impounded by the Chief of Police, or any person authorized by him for this purpose.
