Rochester Ordinance Regarding Pets

From 106A: Animals

106A.04 Prohibited Wild Animal. Subdivision 1. It shall be unlawful to keep any wild animal within the City limits, except as permitted pursuant to the provisions of this section.

Subd. 2. As used in this section, "wild animal" shall have the following meaning: Any animal, mammal, amphibian or reptile which is of a species which is wild by nature or of a species which due to size, vicious nature or other characteristics is inherently dangerous to human beings. Examples of wild animals, without limitation, are:

. . .typical stuff deleted. . .large cats, wolves, things that eat children. . .

(e) Any skunk, raccoon, fox or animal protected under State of Minnesota or Federal wildlife regulations.

(f) Any bear, ape, monkey in excess of five (5) pounds, or badger.

If I could buy a 4 pound bear I would buy it. That sounds really cute.

(g) Any porcine (pig like animals) including but not limited to pot-bellied pigs.

(h) Any other animal, bird or reptile which is commonly considered wild and not domesticated.
