§ 91.06  QUARANTINE.
   (A)   Whenever the Governing Body of the city or the Health Officer thereof has reason to believe that there is danger that rabies may spread within the municipality, the Board shall publish a notice requiring owners of dogs, and other specified animals in the area designated, to confine the animals for a period as may be necessary to prevent the spread of rabies. The Board of Health, or Health Officer appointed by the Governing Body of the city, or the Governing Body, shall have the authority to quarantine for a period not to exceed 90 days, any animal bitten by another animal known or suspected to have rabies, and to quarantine for a period not to exceed 15 days, any animal which has bitten a human being or which exhibits symptoms of rabies.
   (B)   Whenever a dog dies with rabies or is destroyed because of its having been suspected of being rabid, the owner thereof, whether the dog has been previously quarantined or not, shall at his or her own expense, send the head of the dog to a proper laboratory for examination.
   (C)   Any confinement imposed shall be by a chain, and not a rope, of sufficient strength to hold such an animal. Under these circumstances, any animal not confined is declared to be a nuisance.
