(A) If any owner of a dog, cat or ferret four months of age or older, that has bitten any person or other animal, cannot furnish evidence that the dog, cat or ferret is currently inoculated against rabies, this shall constitute prima facie evidence that the owner is in violation of §§ 90.08 and 90.10 and subject to the penalties provided herein.
(B) The efficacy of rabies vaccine for fur bearing mammals and wild animals is not established; therefore, there is no observation period. When a fur bearing mammal or wild animal is involved in a bite, they should be humanely dispatched and their brain shall be submitted to a recognized laboratory for rabies examination, if applicable, by the Administrator or his or her agents.
