Liability for Animal Owners

Definition

Owners of wild animals are strictly liable for any injuries caused by the animals. Owners of domestic animals that have known, abnormally dangerous propensities are liable for negligence if they fail to exercise reasonable care in preventing harm. Owners of domestic animals lacking known, dangerous propensities are only liable for negligence if they fail to act as a reasonably prudent person to prevent reasonably foreseeable harm.
