It is against the law in York County for animals to become a public nuisance. This includes excessive barking, molesting passersby, chasing vehicles, attacking other domestic animals, damaging property and trespassing on private property.
If animal control officers do not witness these violations, they cannot act upon them. Citizens, however, can take some steps to remedy the problem.
First, talk to the owners of the animal. They may not realize the animal is creating a problem.
If the first step is unsuccessful, contact York County Animal Control at 803-628-3190 or email@example.com. This will allow an animal control officer to contact the owners of the animal to discuss the problem and, hopefully, correct the situation.
