(A) Disposal of Afflicted Dog: Any dog afflicted with rabies shall be disposed of immediately either by the owner, by the Chief of Police or anyone designated by the City Council.
(B) Quarantine or Impoundment Authorized:
(1) Law Enforcement or any person designated by the City Council has the authority to order the owner of any dog showing symptoms of rabies, or of any dog which has bitten any person so as to cause any abrasion of the skin; to subject such dog to the City pound for quarantine for a period of time not to exceed fifteen (15) days, and if such owner shall pay the regular fee for keeping dogs impounded, no other fee shall be charged. If such fee is not paid, the dog shall be subject to disposal as provided in section 4-3-7 and the owner shall be liable for costs as provided in section 4-3-7.
(2) Provided, however, that in lieu of submitting such dog to the City pound, the owner may, at his expense, admit such a dog to a veterinarian for examination.
