Noxious Weeds

Stray Animals

The Stray Animals Act requires owners to prevent animals from being at large. The fencing requirements for keeping cattle, horses, wild boar and other animal species are described in the Regulations of this Act. This Act is enforced by the R.C.M.P.

The R.M. of Swift Current each year appoints a Poundkeeper that is situated in the R.M. When a stray animal is found and the property does not have proper facilities to house the animal, it is transported to the Poundkeeper. If the property does have the proper facilities and the owner is willing, the R.M. Administrator appoints the owner a temporary poundkeeper.

If you encounter a stray animal, it is imperative that you contact the Municipal Office immediately so that the proper procedures can be set in motion.
