No person owning or having the care, custody or charge of any dog shall allow or permit such dog, whether in the company of any person or not, to be upon any street or public place unless such dog shall be securely held in leash to prevent such dog from biting. Any person owning or having the care, custody or charge of any dog which is kept on the premises shall, unless said dog is in his or her immediate custody, keep it securely fastened in such manner as to prevent said dog from biting any person entering upon or leaving such premises.
Any dog found at large at any place in violation of the provisions of this section or the provisions of Article 7 of the Agriculture and Markets Law of the State of New York shall be seized and directed or ordered by the Chief of Police and taken to the dog pound; and, if not redeemed within five days thereafter, such dog shall be destroyed.
Before any dog is redeemed from such pound, the police shall require proper and sufficient proof of ownership of said dog.
Whenever, in an action against the owner or other person having the care, custody or control of any dog, satisfactory proof is submitted to the court that such dog is vicious and dangerous by reason of its having bitten or injured any person, the Judge of the court, after the case is tried, may issue an order to the Chief of Police directing the destruction of such dog. In compliance with such order, such dog shall be killed at the dog pound.
Any person owning or having the care, custody or charge of any dog, when such dog is housed or confined, shall so house and confine such dog in a place so constructed as to prevent the barking of such dog from disturbing the peace and quiet of the persons residing in the surrounding neighborhood.
