Failure to Provide Adequate Exercise Area

597t.  Every person who keeps an animal confined in an enclosed area shall provide it with an adequate exercise area.  If the animal is restricted by a leash, rope, or chain, the leash, rope, or chain shall be affixed in such a manner that it will prevent the animal from becoming entangled or injured and permit the animal’s access to adequate shelter, food, and water.  Violation of this section constitutes a misdemeanor.   

This section shall not apply to an animal which is in transit, in a vehicle, or in the immediate control of a person.
