Livestock is clearly defined in the bylaws as an animal normally associated to farming operations and kept for the purpose of breeding, sale or meat. Unfortunately, they took a whole host of those "farm" animals, put them on a separate scheduksschedule and zoned out our mostly rural town to exclude "settlement" areas. So they kinda left a loophole where my chickens would be pets, but they doubled-back, left out the word livestock (which they went to the trouble of defining) and prohibited our feathered friends explicitly in the "city" part of our farming community. I've spoken to my ward councillor and i'm going to try a written appeal. We shall see!
