Once again government has to step in where common sense seems to have stepped out. Police Jurors in Jeff Davis Parish adopted an ordinance on Wednesday that should help stem the tide of loose livestock within the parish. There have been incidents of free roaming livestock blocking public roadways and trespassing on private property so police jurors have now passed a law to prohibit such behavior.

The law doesn’t apply to just cows, it also includes horses, sheep, goats, donkeys, mules and domesticated deer and buffalo. The free roaming animals can not only do damage to private property but can be quite deadly on the roadways.

The law states that animals must be confined to the private property of their owners. Under the new ordinance loose livestock would be impounded by the Sheriffs office and the owner would face a fine. Unclaimed animals would be sold.
