If, in the reasonable belief of any person or police officer, an animal presents an immediate danger to the health and safety of any person, or the animal is threatening imminent harm to any person, or the animal is in the process of attacking any person, the officer may destroy the animal in a proper and humane manner. Otherwise, the person or officer may apprehend the animal and deliver it to the Pound for confinement under § 90.05. If the animal is destroyed, a charge of an amount set by the City Council from time to time to dispose of the animal is payable by the owner of the animal. If the animal is found not to be a danger to the health and safety of the city, it may be released to the owner or keeper in accordance with § 90.05(C).
