Animals Running At Large

In Minnesota, if you are injured by another person’s animal that is “running at large,” you may be permitted to recover for the damages you suffer. Minnesota law covers injuries caused by cattle, horses, asses, mules, sheep, swine, or goats that are running at large. If the owner of the animal permits the animal to run at large, and the animal causes damages, the animals’ owner is responsible. Additionally, if the owner knowingly permits the animal to run at large, then you have the right to collect treble damages. Treble damages allow you to recover triple the amount of your actual damages.

Injuries involving animals running at large are actually common in Minnesota, especially in rural areas. Injuries can occur when you are actually struck by the animal, when the animal causes an automobile collision, such as a cow running in front of your car on a rural road, or in other situations.
