Mansuetae Naturae Law and Legal Definition

Mansuetae naturae is a Latin term meaning animals which are generally domestic, presumed gentle and readily tamed. For example, dogs, cats, cows and horses.

Animals mansuetae naturae, that is, the class of domesticated animals, are regarded as inherently non-offensive, and not being of a risk to human beings, and every man has the right to keep and harbor animals mansuetae naturae. [Peyronnin v. Riley, 15 La. App. 393 (La. Ct. App. 1931)].
