Horses find way into municipal cemetery
Date posted: October 28, 2013
SHERIDAN — Over the weekend, horses were spotted in the city of Sheridan Municipal Cemetery. City ordinance prohibits horses, pigs, sheep, cows, goats and other similar animals from running at large in city parks, grounds and cemeteries.
City Clerk Scott Badley said the city is aware of the problem and is working to address it.
Badley said the horses are getting through a fence that separates the west side of the cemetery from adjacent pastureland. He said it has happened a few times over the last few weeks, but as far as he knows, it is not intentional. Badley does not know who owns the horses.
“There’s that old saying that ‘good fences make good neighbors.’ Our city staff will be trying to address that issue, to find the gaps where they’re getting in,” Badley said. “It’s not a good thing. We’ll try to make sure it doesn’t happen anymore.”
