Animal Issues
  • Animals at Large - It is a misdemeanor for dogs or livestock to be at large within Nye County. Dogs must be restrained by a leash unless confined on or within the owner's property
  • Animal Noise Annoyance - It is a misdemeanor for a person owning or possessing an animal to allow said animal to bark, yelp, bray, or make other noises in such a manner that, because of the  duration or repitition of the noise, a reasonable person would consider an unreasonable intrusion into the quiet enjoyment of their property. 

  • Humane Animal Traps - Humane animal traps can be obtained from the Nye County Animal Shelter, located at 1511 Siri Lane Pahrump & 20 Goldfinch Lane Tonopah. A $100 deposit is required. The trap may be kept for a maximum of fifteen (15) days. An Animal Control Officer will be dispatched to remove all trapped animals. Call 751-6315 for more information. 

  • Pigeon Infestation - Pigeons are considered unprotected feral birds and as such most private pest control agencies are knowledgeable and licensed to handle pigeon infestation. Most pigeon infestations occur on private property and as such it is the owner's responsibility to attend to the problem. 
    Some success has been found in the use of an artificial predator such as an owl, hawk, snake or cat, posted in area where pigeons congregate. The
    shooting of pigeons or using explosive devices to scare pigeons is unlawful within most town limits.
