Little Elm Animal Ordinance

Sec. 18-42. - Animals creating disturbances.

The keeping of any animal or bird which, by causing frequent or long-continued noise, shall disturb the comfort and repose of any person of ordinary sensibilities in the immediate vicinity is declared a nuisance in violation of this section. An audible noise from an animal or bird, in excess of 15 minutes, even if in sporadic bursts, shall be prima facie evidence that the same constitutes a nuisance. A person shall be deemed to have willfully and knowingly violated terms of this subsection if such person shall have been notified by the animal control officer or any police officer of such disturbance and shall have failed or refused to correct such disturbance and prevent its recurrence.
