§ 90.28  DOGS AT LARGE; VIOLATION.
   (A)   For purposes of this section, AT LARGE means being neither confined by an enclosure nor physically restrained by a leash.
   (B)   It shall be unlawful for any person having ownership, possession or control of a dog to allow the dog to run at large within the town.
   (C)   Each day a violation continues shall be deemed a separate offense.
   (D)   Any dog at large shall be apprehended and impounded by an enforcement agent.
      (1)   Said agent shall have the right to enter upon private property when it is necessary to do so in order to apprehend any dog that has been running at large. Such entrance upon private property shall be in reasonable pursuit of such dog and shall not include entry into a domicile or enclosure which confines a dog unless it be at the invitation of the occupant.
      (2)   Said agent may issue a citation to the dog owner or person acting for the owner when the dog is at large. The procedure for the issuance of notice to appear shall be as provided for peace officers in A.R.S. § 13-3903, except the enforcement agent shall not make an arrest before issuing the notice. The issuance of citations pursuant to this chapter shall be subject to provisions of A.R.S. § 13-3899.
      (3)   In the judgment of the enforcement agent, if any dog at large or other animal that is dangerous or fierce and a threat to human safety cannot be safely impounded, it may be slain.
