**PLEASE READ**    Regarding ANIMAL SAFETY in this cold weather.......

Domestic Animals: We don't recommend keeping any pet outside for long periods of time, but if you are unable to keep your pet inside during cold weather, provide him/her with a warm, solid shelter against wind. Make sure that they have unlimited access to fresh, non-frozen water (by changing the water frequently or using a pet-safe, heated water bowl). The floor of the shelter should be off of the ground (to minimize heat loss into the ground) and the bedding should be thick, dry and changed regularly to provide a warm, dry environment. The door to the shelter should be positioned away from prevailing winds.

Livestock: can generally tolerate cold temperatures, but wind, rain, or snow will require a greater expenditure of calories. With that in mind, be sure they have a way to get out of the elements, especially the wind. Blankets can help protect horses, but a structural shelter with proper ventilation and dry bedding is the best method of protection for livestock.  It is crucial that your herd consumes enough calories to heat themselves and has access to fresh and unfrozen water. Tank heaters or heated buckets can help keep water at a temperature your animals are more comfortable drinking. Livestock will not consume adequate amounts of water if it is near freezing, and consuming enough water is important to your animals' health and well-being in winter months. ​

 

Under the Animal Protection Act:

Section 2(1) No person shall cause or permit an animal of which the person is the owner or the person in charge to be or to continue be in be in distress.  

Section 2.1 – A person who owns or is in charge of an animal

  1. must ensure that the animal has adequate food and water,
  2. must provide the animal with adequate care when the animal is wounded or ill,
  3. must provide the animal with reasonable protection from injurious heat or cold, and
  4. must provide the animal with adequate shelter, ventilation and space.

******Animal owners in violation of any of the above legislation, can possibly face fines and seizure of their animals. ********

Camrose County Officers urge the public to please contact Law Enforcement if they observe any animals in distress................Camrose County Protective Services........780-672-4449

 

The role of the County Officers in a situation of animal distress would be to enforce the Animal Protection Act, which would include educating the animal owner on their responsibilities to care for their animals in cold weather situations. Unfortunately, the Officers and Camrose County do not have the means or facilities to catch or care for stray cats. The local shelter capacity is very limited as well. Camrose County has a contract with Old MacDonald Kennels to deal with stray dog complaints in the County, but unfortunately this doesn't apply to cats.

The Municipal Planning Commission meetings are open to the public and typically occur on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.  The agenda is available here the week before the meeting.

Please note that while MPC meetings are open to the public, they are not Public Hearings. The most effective way to submit feedback on a particular proposal is in writing in advance of the meeting to the Planning and Development department, who can then attach it to the public agenda package. MPC members may, at their discretion, ask questions of administration or any affected parties relating to the agenda during the meeting.

Although Farm Vehicles (Class 2) are exempt from the provisions of sections 10 and 22 of the NSC (National Safety Code for Motor Carriers) when carrying bales (IF they do not exceed the posted speed limit or 80 km/hr, whichever is less, and the vehicle is not operated onon any highway or portion of a highway except to cross the highway), they are NOT EXEMPT from Section 5(2) of the Cargo Securement Standard which states:

"The cargo securement system shall provide a downward force equal to at least 20% of the weight of an article of cargo if the article is not fully contained within the structure of the vehicle"

What this is saying is that you MUST secure each bale with strap, with a marked Working Load Limit (WWL) of at least 20% of weight or aggregate weight of each bale or stack of bales loaded on any vehicle.

For example, If you have a sinigle bale that weighs 500 kg you would need to secure that bale with a strap marked with a WWL of 100 kg. 

If you have one strap over two bales that weight 500 kg each, you would need a strap with a WWL of 200 kg. 

If you have a single strap over three bales that weigh 500 kg each, you would need a strap with a WWL of 300 kg.

The fines for an improperly secured load are up to $776.
