Whenever an officer has reasonable cause to believe that a particular dog or cat presents a clear and immediate danger to residents of the city because it is infected with rabies (hydrophobia) or because of a clearly demonstrated vicious nature, the officer, after making reasonable attempts to impound the dog or cat, may summarily destroy the dog or cat. In the event of the destruction of the dog or cat, the officer shall use all precautions necessary to preserve the brain of the animal for examination of rabies.
