§ 9-11-306. Impoundment of dogs; redemption or destruction of impounded dogs.

The Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources shall cause to be constructed within each wildlife management area a building or enclosure suitable for the impoundment of dogs found upon said wildlife management area in violation of Section 9-11-305. Whenever a dog is found upon said wildlife management area in violation of Section 9-11-305, it shall be impounded in said building or enclosure until such time as it is redeemed by its owner or is destroyed in accordance with the provisions of this section. Promptly after the impoundment of any such dog, the Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources shall cause to be published in at least one paper of general circulation in the county or counties within which said wildlife management area is located a notice wherein said dog is described, the circumstances attending its impoundment are set forth and notice is given that the dog may be redeemed prior to a date which shall not be less than 21 days after said notification in writing or first publication of said notice by furnishing proof of ownership, payment of any fine imposed by the court of local jurisdiction for violation of Section 9-11-305 and the payment of an impoundment charge of $5.00 to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to cover the cost of impounding and advertising said dog and that, unless redeemed by such date, said dog will be destroyed. The above described published notice shall appear in at least two issues of each paper in which it is published, the second appearance to follow the first by not less than six nor more than 15 days. In addition to such published notice, the Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources shall, if the owner of said dog is known, cause a similar written notice to be delivered to said owner promptly after the impoundment of said dog. If, prior to the date set forth in the above described published notice, said dog is redeemed as provided for in said published notice, the Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources shall cause said dog to be released and removed from the wildlife management area; but, if said dog be not so redeemed, the Commissioner of Conservation and Natural Resources shall cause said dog to be destroyed.
