The leash law is a provision in the code of the City of Liberal that prohibits certain domestic animals from roaming free. Liberal City Code states that "It shall be unlawful for any person owning, harboring, or having the custody or possession of any dog to cause or allow such animal to run at large within the city. If any dog is found at large withing the city, the owner shall be presumed to have violated this article. " Chapter 2 of city code also defines " at large" as "To be outside of a fence or other enclosure which restrains the animals to particular premises or not under the control, by leash or lead, of the owner or other authorized person capable of restraining the animal. Animals tethered to a stationary object within range of pyblic thoroughfares are deemed to be "At Large."
What that means is that all dogs must be confined by either a leash, rope, chain, fenced area, or inside a dwelling 24 hours a day and not allowed to roam free.
