Most of us have had a pet at one time in our lives and know how an animal can be an important member of the family. The problem is if your “family friend” gets loose. A stray animal may be a nuisance, cause fear, get hit by a vehicle, or worse, bite or injure someone.
The City of Fort Morgan Municipal Code
Section 7-2-20 does not allow animals to run at large. Not only does this Code
cover dogs and cats but also fowl such as chickens, geese, and other birds. These Codes
are enacted to protect animals and people alike.
For a first-time offense of having an animal running loose, a summons is issued and the owner is given the option of admitting guilt and paying a fine or going to court. A second offense results in a summons with a mandatory court appearance.
