§ 91.25  REFUSAL TO REPORT BITE.
   It is unlawful for any person having knowledge that any person has been bitten by a dog or other animal to refuse to notify the Village Dog Warden immediately.  It is unlawful for the owner or custodian of such dog or other animal to euthanize, sell, give away, or otherwise dispose of any such dog or other animal known to have bitten a person, until it is released by the Village Dog Warden, or his authorized representative.  It is unlawful for the owner or custodian of such dog or other animal to refuse or fail to comply with the written or printed instructions made by the Village Dog Warden, or his authorized representative.  If such instructions cannot be delivered in person, they shall be mailed to the owner or custodian of such dog or other animal by regular mail, postage prepaid.  The affidavit or testimony of the Village Dog Warden, or his authorized representative, delivering or mailing such instructions is prima facie evidence that the owner or custodian of such dog or such other animal was notified of his responsibilities.  Any expense incurred in the handling of any dog or other animal under this chapter shall be borne by the owner.  For the purpose herein, IMMEDIATELY means by telephone, in person, or by other than use of the mail.
