[Amended 1-14-1981 by L.L. No. 1-1981]
It shall be unlawful for a dog to be on public property unless such dog is effectively restrained in the immediate custody and control of a person by a chain or leash not exceeding six feet in length, or on private property without the consent of the owner or person in possession of such private property whether or not such dog is so restrained. A person who owns, possesses, harbors, or has custody of a dog which is not so restrained, whether with or without the knowledge, consent or fault of such person, shall be in violation of this section. A person having immediate custody and control of a dog so restrained who permits such dog to be on private property without consent of the owner or person in possession of such private property shall be in violation of this section. It shall be presumed that the presence of a dog on private property of a person other than the person who owns, possesses, harbors or has custody of the dog is without the consent of the owner or person in possession of such private property.
[Amended 8-14-1996 by L.L. No. 2-1996]
No person who owns, possesses, harbors, keeps or is in charge or control of a dog, cat or other animal shall cause, suffer, allow or permit any such animal to soil, defile, defecate, or urinate on any public highway, street, thoroughfare, or walk used in common by the public, or any place where people congregate or on any private property, without the permission of the owner of said private property. The restriction in this section shall not apply to that portion of the street lying between the curblines, and, with respect to streets which have adjoining sidewalks, the property between the curbline of the street and the sidewalk, which areas shall be used to curb such animals, provided that the person who so curbs such animal shall immediately remove all feces deposited by such animal by placing the feces in a paper or plastic bag which shall be secured and deposited in a covered garbage receptacle.
[Amended 1-14-1981 by L.L. No. 1-1981]
Any dog on public property which is not effectively restrained as provided in § 76-1 of this chapter, or any dog on private property without the consent of the owner or person in possession of such private property, may be seized by any duly appointed Town of North Hempstead Dog Control Officer, and thereafter, confined in the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter until disposition is made pursuant to the local law adopted by the Town of North Hempstead relating to such disposition.
