Dogs as a Public Nuisance

Under this statute, any dog that habitually molests a person traveling peaceably on the public road or street is a public nuisance. If the victim files a written complaint with a district or municipal judge, the judge will give notice to the owner and require that the owner take the necessary action to prevent the dog from engaging in that behavior. If the judge receives a second complaint, the owner will be required to appear in court and may be subject to fines or other court orders.
