  4.22     Subd. 2.  [SECURITY.] A person claiming an interest in an 
  4.23  animal in custody under subdivision 1 may prevent disposition of

  4.29  the animal at the end of the time for which expenses of care and 
  4.30  keeping are covered by the bond or security, unless there is a 
  4.31  court order prohibiting the disposition.  The order must provide 
  4.32  for a bond or other security in the amount necessary to protect 
  4.33  the authority having custody of the animal from any cost of the 
  4.34  care, keeping, or disposal of the animal.  The security must be 
  4.35  posted within ten days of the seizure inclusive of the date of 
  4.36  the seizure. 
  5.1      Subd. 3.  [NOTICE; RIGHT TO HEARING.] (a) The authority 
  5.2   taking custody of an animal under section 343.22 or 343.29 shall 
  5.3   give notice of this section by delivering or mailing it to a 
  5.4   person claiming an interest in the animal or by posting a copy 
  5.5   of it at the place where the animal is taken into custody or by 
  5.6   delivering it to a person residing on the property, and 
  5.7   telephoning, if possible.  The notice must include: 
  5.8      (1) a description of the animal seized; the authority and 
  5.9   purpose for the seizure; the time, place, and circumstances 
  5.10  under which the animal was seized; and the location, address, 
  5.11  telephone number, and contact person where the animal is kept; 
  5.12     (2) a statement that a person claiming an interest in the 
  5.13  animal may post security to prevent disposition of the animal 
  5.14  and may request a hearing concerning the seizure or impoundment 
  5.15  and that failure to do so within ten days of the date of the 
  5.16  notice will result in disposition of the animal; and 
  5.17     (3) a statement that all actual costs of the care, keeping, 
  5.18  and disposal of the animal are the responsibility of the person 
  5.19  claiming an interest in the animal, except to the extent that a 
  5.20  court or hearing officer finds that the seizure or impoundment 
  5.21  was not substantially justified by law. 
  5.22     The notice must also include a form that can be used by a 
  5.23  person claiming an interest in the animal for requesting a 
  5.24  hearing under this subdivision. 
  5.25     (b) Upon request of a person claiming an interest in the 
  5.26  animal, which request must be made within ten days of the date 
  5.27  of seizure, a hearing must be held within five business days of 
  5.28  the request, to determine the validity of the seizure and 
  5.29  impoundment.  If the seizure was done pursuant to a warrant 
  5.30  under section 343.22, the hearing must be conducted by the judge 
  5.31  who issued the warrant.  If the seizure was done under section 
  5.32  343.29, the municipality taking custody of the animal or, in the 
  5.33  case of a humane society, the municipality from which the animal 
  5.34  was seized, may either (1) authorize a licensed veterinarian 
  5.35  with no financial interest in the matter or professional 
  5.36  association with either party or (2) use the services of a 
  6.1   hearing officer to conduct the hearing.  A person claiming an 
  6.2   interest in the animal who is aggrieved by a decision of a 
  6.3   hearing officer under this subdivision may seek a court order 
  6.4   governing the seizure or impoundment within five days of notice 
  6.5   of the order. 
  6.6      (c) The judge or hearing officer may authorize the return 
  6.7   of the animal, if the judge or hearing officer finds that: 
  6.8      (1) the animal is physically fit; and 
  6.9      (2) the person claiming an interest in the animal can and 
  6.10  will provide the care required by law for the animal. 
  6.11     (d) The person claiming an interest in the animal is liable 
  6.12  for all actual costs of care, keeping, and disposal of the 
  6.13  animal, except to the extent that a court or hearing officer 
  6.14  finds that the seizure or impoundment was not substantially 
  6.15  justified by law.  The costs must be paid in full or a mutually 
  6.16  satisfactory arrangement for payment must be made between the 
  6.17  municipality and the person claiming an interest in the animal 
  6.18  before return of the animal to the person. 
  6.19     Sec. 8.  Minnesota Statutes 1994, section 343.29, 
  6.20  subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
  6.21     Subdivision 1.  [DELIVERY TO SHELTER.] Any peace officer,

  6.25  from cold, hot, or inclement weather or any animal not properly 
  6.26  fed and watered, or provided with suitable food and drink in 
  6.27  circumstances that threaten the life of the animal.  When 
  6.28  necessary, a peace officer, animal control officer, or agent may 
  6.29  deliver the animal to another person to be sheltered and cared 
  6.30  for, and furnished with suitable food and drink.  In all cases, 
  6.31  the owner, if known, shall be immediately notified as provided 
  6.32  in section 343.235, subdivision 3, and the person having 
  6.33  possession of the animal, shall have a lien thereon for 
  6.34  its actual costs of care and keeping and the expenses of the 
  6.35  notice.  If the owner or custodian is unknown and cannot by 
  6.36  reasonable effort be ascertained, or does not, within seven ten

 23.12  motion to cancel the lease or otherwise secure restitution of

 23.22  agreement controlling the tenancy or leasehold does not provide 
 23.23  for eviction or cancellation of the lease upon the ground 
 23.24  provided in this section.

 23.31     (a) upon the motion of the building owner cancels a lease 
 23.32  or tenancy and grants restitution of that portion of the 
 23.33  premises to the owner; and 
 23.34     (b) further finds that the acts constituting the nuisance 
 23.35  as defined in section 617.81, subdivision 2, were committed in a 
 23.36  portion of the building under the control of by the tenant or 
 24.1   lessee whose lease or tenancy has been canceled pursuant to this 
 24.2   section and the tenant or lessee was not committing the acts in 
 24.3   conjunction with or under the control of the owner.
