§ 618.11   RABIES QUARANTINE.
   (a)   No person having knowledge of the existence of rabies in an animal, or knowledge that an animal has exhibited symptoms or behavior suggestive of rabies, or knowledge that an animal has bitten any person, shall fail to immediately report such information to the Mayor or the Chief of Police.
   (b)   Whenever it is established by the Mayor or Chief of Police that any animal has bitten any person or exhibits symptoms or behavior suggestive of rabies, the person who owns, harbors or otherwise cares for such animal shall confine it in close quarantine and isolation or shall place such animal in the establishment of a veterinarian until, in either case, it is determined by the County Board of Health that the animal is not afflicted with rabies.  The isolation and quarantine period hereby required shall be not less than ten days from the date the person was bitten.  If the animal has, or develops, any symptoms suspicious of rabies during the ten-day period, the County Board of Health shall be notified immediately.  All expenses incurred for the keeping of such animal, or the necessary tests to determine whether rabies exists, shall be borne exclusively by the person who owns, harbors or otherwise cares for such animal.
(Adopting Ordinance)
   (c)   Whenever the Mayor deems it necessary for the protection of the public, he or she shall issue an order prohibiting, for a certain time therein specified, any dog from being at large in any public street or place, unless muzzled and on leash, so as to prevent it from biting any person or animal.  Such order shall be posted in three conspicuous places in the village, for such time as the Mayor deems necessary, and any dog found at large during the existence of such quarantine order shall be impounded and may be destroyed by village authority without notice to the owner.
