Animals At Large


Question: My neighbor has cattle and horses and it seems like they are always getting out of their fences, and many times out onto the road. In fact, a couple of times he has had them hit by cars. Isn’t there some kind of law requiring animals to be kept secured ? Can he get into trouble with the law or get sued?
