Exo. 21:28-32 implies that leash laws are entirely proper. Towns with leash laws have stated a presumption that animals are a nuisance. In such places, if a dog gets loose and tears up a flower bed, the owner should be held accountable; and if the dog kills a child, the owner should be liable to death.
