Whenever any dog bites a person within the village, the owner of such dog shall immediately notify the village Health Officer, who shall order the dog held on the owner's premises or shall have it impounded for a period of two weeks. Such dog shall be examined immediately after it has bitten anyone and again at the end of the two-week period. If at the end of two weeks a veterinarian is convinced that the dog is then free from rabies, the dog shall be released from quarantine or from the pound as the case may be. If the dog dies in the meanwhile its head shall be sent to the State Department of Health for examination for rabies.
