Dog Bite Laws in the City of Lake Station

Aggressive Dog

An unprovoked bite by a dog or cat does not necessarily mean that the dog or cat is dangerous or vicious. In the United States, all dogs and house cats, regardless of breed or size, are presumed to be harmless domestic animals. This presumption can be overcome with proof of a dangerous propensity as demonstrated by specific conduct of that particular animal.  A dangerous propensity is the tendency of an animal to act to endanger the safety of people or other animals. Depending on the facts of a dog or cat bite case, that dog’s or cat’s biting of a person can be used as evidence of that animal’s viciousness.

Lake Station Code 6‐18 states the following relating to “Animals Running at Large”: No person having ownership, charge, control or responsibility for a domestic animal shall permit them to run at large upon any public place, or upon any unenclosed lands the premises of another, such conduct shall constitute a public nuisance.

Lake Station Code 6‐27 states the following relating to “Leash Regulations”: No person being the owner or having custody and control of any dog or cat shall permit or allow the dog or cat to run or to be al large in the streets, or on the walks or public grounds of the city, unless the dog or cat shall wear a collar or a harness and be effectively restrained by a chain or leash not more than ten (10) feet in length.
