Animals causing a nuisance  Printer Friendly

According to the Domestic Animals Act 1994 , an animal can be classified a nuisance if it:
- injures or endangers the health of any person; or
- creates a noise, by barking or otherwise, which persistently occurs or continues to such a degree or extent that it unreasonably interferes with the peace, comfort or convenience of other people in any other premises.

If you are affected by animals creating a nuisance such as barking, you should firstly contact the owner of that animal as they might not be aware that their animal is a nuisance to you.

If this does not resolve the problem, then talk to one of our officers to discuss your concerns.
