Everybody welcome at all these
Oklahoma Herd Law.
The constitution and enabling
act provides that as soon as the con-
stitution is ratified by the President
the laws of Oklahoma Territory
shall be extended over the entire
state. A number of our people
have asked me for information re-
garding the stock law, or herd law.
For the benefit of these inquirers
and other interested persons I have
compiled the following from the
"Eyer^ owner of swine, sheep,
goats, stallions, or jacks, shall re
strain them at all times and all
seasons of the year from running at
"All other domestic animals
other than the ones above mention
ed, shall We restrained from run
ning at large unless permitted to
run at large as further provided by
It Is provided when a petition
signed by twenty-five homesteaders
or free-holders, legal vbters and
residents of a county, is presented
to the board of county commission-
ers said commissioners in session
said commissioners shall divide the
county into stock districts of not
less than seventy-two nor more than
one hundred, and forty-four square
miles and in compact form. Said
commissioners shall consider
whether the land embraced in said
district is better adapted for graz
ing or agricultural purposes.
On petition of one fourth of tbe
legal Voters of the stock district so
established, tbe question of wheth-
er stock other than hogs, sheep,
goats, etc., shall run at large, shall
be submitted to a vote of the people
of the district. If a majority be in
favor of letting stock run at large
the same shall be in force for-thrte
year; after which time the stock
must be kept up unless the people
again vote for them to run at large
The owner of such stock that
shall run at large ir 'he district
shall be liable for all damages done
by such animals; which may be
recovered by action at law; or the
injured (damaged) party jnay at
his option put the stock up and re
tain them in some safe place at the
expense of the owner, until the
damagts are paid
If tbe owner go and take the
stock away without tbe consent of
the person having them under re-
straint, he will be guilty of a mis
^demeanor and shall pay a fine of
not less than ten ($10 00) dollars
nor more than one hundred ($100 •
00) dollars, or be imprisoned not
less than ten days nor more than
thirty days, or both.
A lien stands on the stock for all
damages and if damages and costs
of keeping the stock be not paid
the stock shall be sold to the
highest bidder upon due and pro
per notice. Justices of the Peace
have jurisdiction in such cases.
The Oklahoma Statutes make no
provision for hogs running at large
at any time or under any consider-
ation. It is plainly stated that they
"shall be restrained irom running
at large at alltimhs and all sea-
sons. Wi«. R Harper.
