a pet...shall be suitably controlled, leashed, or caged whenever

Resolved Question:

"a pet...shall be suitably controlled, leashed, or caged whenever they are on the Condominium premises outside the interior of any residence unit;..."

I read this to say 3 things;
1. suitably controlled,
2. on a leash,
3. or caged.
Am I reading correctly?

Hi JACustomer,
Yes - according to the rule you submitted for review, the pet must be one in one of 3 conditions. It is possible that the intent was to offer only 2 options, which would have been expressed thusly: "shall be suitably controlled - leashed or caged..."
However, there is no question that the way the rule is currently written, there are 3 acceptable conditions (1) controlled 2) leashed 3) caged).
There is one additional possibility - that the pet must be 1) suitably controlled, or 2) suitably leashed, or 3) suitably caged.
