Animal Control: How to Effectively Report to St Paul Animal Control

Animal Control, St Paul works to ensure that humans and animals coexist peacefully in Saint Paul. They promote responsible pet ownership, conduct field investigations and enforce animal laws and regulations. They also provide shelter-based care for homeless and lost animals.

Animal bite victims should contact the Police Department immediately after the event to file a complaint.  The officers will investigate an animal bite by interviewing the victim, the animal's owner (if known), and any witnesses. They may also take photographs of the injuries and the scene and plan transfer to a hospital with Emergency Medical Services. They forwarded the report to Saint Paul Animal Control (SPAC) to confine the biting animal and investigate it.

Alternatively, you can use DoNotPay to get justice for animal injuries. It will save you time because DoNotPay will file the demand letter or government report on your behalf with your incident details. You should hear from them directly with further questions/confirmation regarding your demands. That's it!

Quarantine is a rabies control method that ensures that biting animals do not become infected with the virus. Animals that bite people are killed and sent to the State Laboratory for rabies testing or quarantined for ten (10) days. It occurs regardless of whether the animal was vaccinated at the time of the incident.

St Paul Dog Bite Laws

Minnesota is a strict liability jurisdiction for dog bite injuries, and the state's dog bite statutes hold dog owners liable in various situations when their pets injure people.

I find the dog bite law in Minnesota in Section 347.22 of the Minnesota Statutes. It means that an injured person can sue a dog owner accountable for the dog's injuries if;

  1. The individual was legally present in the area where they were bitten, such as on public or private land, and
  2. The individual was acting peacefully, and
  3. The person did not provoke the dog

The dog bite statute covers damage when a dog attacks or injures another person. It includes injuries caused by dog bites and those caused by other dog-related actions. For example, if a dog bites a person and knocks her down, that person may be able to sue under Minnesota's dog bite legislation for damages. The wounded individual does not have to prove that the dog's owner's carelessness caused the damage.
