KAtG - I just did a google search on

"open range" & "states"

and came back with a bunch of hits. Don't know if it is what you are looking for but you may want to have a peek. Type it in the google search area just as I did above (including quotation marks). Good luck.

The reason why I am wondering it is against the law for dogs to chase your cows in open range...KAtG

Open range simply means cattle are free to go where and when they please.Depending on "who" was in power(ie:cattlemen or dog lovers)back when the rules were written determines the"dog laws" enacted.In most area dogs cannot run at large off the owners property.Most states allow that dogs harassing game,can be shot on sight.Here in WI,owner is liable for any damages caused by dog to livestock,and claims for damages are filed with local gov't(City,village,township)who has authority in these matters.Law also provides for livestock owners right to destroy dogs engaged in worrying or injuring his animals.I think you'll find a mix of criminal,civil,conservation and ordinances addressing these matters,not one catchall law.Here if you own livestock,it must be fenced in to prevent its wandering,however if a cow should escape onto the road and be hit,the owner is immune to liability as long as fences were in place and maintained(Lawyers hate this),but here in dairyland "cow laws" prevail.
