While livestock owners are not "strictly liable" like the owners of
dogs, they are still held to a "reasonable standard of care" in
maintaining the enclosures their animals are kept in. This is a wrongful death
case that will presented to the horse owner's liability company.
@ Y askY,In Utah I believe there is no liability for livestock owners
whose animals escape from barns or fenced areas resulting in vehicular/animal
accidents. Why liability for livestock should be any different than
the liability for your dÓberman that harms someone is anyone’s guess.
What is the liability for the horse owner in this situation?
