10. A local municipality orders the owner or custodian of a dog that bit or attacked a person and that caused the person’s death or inflicted a serious injury to the person to have the dog euthanized. It must also have such a dog euthanized where the owner or custodian is unknown or cannot be found.
Until the dog is euthanized, a dog referred to in the first paragraph must be muzzled at all times with a basket muzzle where it is outside the residence of its owner or custodian.
For the purposes of this section, any physical injury that could lead to death or that results in serious physical consequences constitutes a serious injury.
