During the summer months people will be enjoying the outdoors with their pets. The Village of Brown Deer Police Department would like to take this opportunity to remind residents about the laws regulating pets outdoors both on your property and when taking them for walks.
Village of Brown Deer Ordinance (6-4) regulates “Animals at Large”. As it is defined in the Village Ordinance an “Animal at Large” means that an animal is off the premises of its owner and not on a leash or otherwise under the immediate control of a person capable of restraining the animal. If an owner of an animal is found to have allowed their pet to become at large they may be subject to a fine of $240.00. Pet owners should keep in mind this ordinance applies to cats as well as dogs and all other domesticated animals.
We would also like to remind pet owners to keep their cats and dogs currently licensed either through the Village of Brown Deer or Milwaukee County. Controlling our pets is a responsibility we all must take seriously to have a safe and enjoyable community.
