      (1)   If it is necessary for the owner or keeper to obtain veterinary care for the dog; or
      (2)   To comply with the order of a court of competent jurisdiction, provided that the dog is securely muzzled and restrained with a chain having a tensile strength of 300 pounds and not exceeding three feet in length, and shall be under the direct control and supervision of the owner or keeper of the dog.
   (B)   Any dog which has been found to be a vicious dog and which is not confined to an enclosure shall be impounded by the animal control warden or the police, and shall be turned over to a licensed veterinarian for destruction by lethal injection.
