§19-17-4. Partition fence; liability for trespass of animals.
All partition fences shall be lawful fences, unless
otherwise agreed upon by the adjoining owners by a writing
executed in duplicate and duly acknowledge, in which case, if
such fence be kept in good repair, there shall be the same
liability for damages occasioned by trespass of animals owned by
said adjoining owners as if such fence were a lawful fence.
