Jeff Davis cracks down on roaming livestock


JENNINGS, La. (AP) - A parishwide law aimed at prohibiting livestock from roaming public highways or other people's property was approved Wednesday by the Jefferson Davis Parish Police Jury.

The American Press reports police jurors voted unanimously to amend separate ordinances covering livestock.

The first measure makes it unlawful to permit livestock to roam on any land other than that owned or leased by the animals' owner.

The ordinances apply to any animals, including horses, mules, donkeys, cattle, hogs, sheep, goats, domesticated deer and buffalo.

Under the new law, the Sheriff 's Office would impound the animals and notify the owners.

Unclaimed animals would be sold.
