Dangerous Dog Services
By their very nature, dogs classified as “dangerous” or “potentially dangerous” pose a direct threat to the people and other animals that live in the same community or may otherwise come into contact with them. The intent of the Ordinance is to govern and control dangerous and potentially dangerous dogs located within the county. The Ordinance uses the same framework as M.S. §§ 347.50 through 347.565, as they may be amended from time to time, which govern dangerous dogs.
The Ordinance does not regulate, govern or control dogs not considered dangerous or potentially dangerous, or otherwise impact the regulation and control of other animals, whether wild or domestic.
Any person who violates any provision of §§ 90.01 through 90.15 of this chapter is guilty of a misdemeanor.
It is a misdemeanor to remove a microchip from a dangerous or potentially dangerous dog; to fail to renew the registration of a dangerous dog; to fail to account for a dangerous dog’s death, transfer of ownership or removal from the jurisdiction; to sign a false affidavit with respect to a dangerous dog’s death, transfer of ownership or removal from the jurisdiction; or to fail to disclose ownership of a dangerous or potentially dangerous dog to a property owner from whom the person rents property.
