(A) Wild animals found running loose may be impounded. However, neither the city, nor its officers, agents or employees shall be liable for injury or disease to any animal incurred while the animal is being captured, transported or impounded. Wild animals, when found to be at large and/or threatening to injure or damage any person or property, will be deemed to be a public nuisance and may be summarily destroyed without liability resulting to the city, its officers, agents or employees.
(B) Reclamation by an owner or keeper of any impounded wild animal will be permitted upon the payment to the poundmaster of the actual cost to the city of the capture, impounding and care of such animal.
