Cody Livestock Ordinance Defeated
Cody city council drops proposed livestock law
The Associated Press - July 12, 2018

CODY, Wyo. - Residents of Cody in northwest Wyoming can keep any buffalo, hogs, bulls, horses, sheep and other large livestock on their residential property in city limits.

The Cody Enterprise reports city council members Tuesday dropped a proposed ordinance intended to regulate large animals. The proposal died for lack of a motion and after more than a dozen citizens spoke against the proposal. No one spoke in favor.

Main points made by opponents addressed Cody's status as a "cowboy town" where tourists expect an authentic western experience.

Unlike other Wyoming communities, Cody allows livestock in city limits, even in residential areas.

The proposed ordinance defined livestock as cattle, bulls, steers, buffalo, horses, pigs, hogs, mules, donkeys, sheep, lambs, goats, llamas and alpacas. It didn't prohibit small animals such as chickens and rabbits.
