Is anybody else forced to deal with miniature horses and pygmy goats as pets in single-family neighborhoods? We passed an ordinance allowing pot-bellied pigs a number of years ago; and now the horse and goat owners want to play, too.
If you've dealt with this, I would appreciate knowing:
Do you allow these animals in your city? Which districts or neighborhoods?
Is a permit required? Who issues it? Is there neighborhood notice? What findings are required?
Do your regulations address noise, waste, walking them on city streets or public parks, leashes, vaccinations, or limits on the number or size of the animals?
Which agency and department enforces the regulations?
Any other words of advice greatly appreciated.
