(A)   It is unlawful for an owner to fail to restrain an animal from biting any person, whether or not the owner is present at the time of the bite. Whenever any person owning an animal within the city shall learn that such animal has bitten any human being, such person shall immediately impound said animal in a place of confinement where it cannot escape or have access to any human being or other animal and shall also immediately notify the Chief of Police.
   (B)   The Chief of Police when informed that an animal has bitten any human being shall ascertain the identity of such animal and the person owning or harboring and shall immediately direct such person to immediately impound such animal as herein required. The Chief of Police shall also immediately notify the Manager of the place where the animal is impounded.
   (C)   Any animal which has bitten a human being shall be impounded continuously for ten days. The Manager or designee shall inspect said animal from time to time during its period of confinement and determine whether such animal is infected with rabies. For this purpose he or she shall have access to the premises where such animal is kept at all reasonable hours and may take possession of the animal and confine it in the city pound or other suitable place at the expense of the owner. The owner or person in possession or harboring such animal shall immediately notify the Manager or designee of any evidence of sickness or disease in the animal during its period of confinement and shall promptly deliver its carcass to the Manager or designee in case of its death during such period.
