(60 ILCS 1/30-110)
Impounding and sale of animals.
The electors may authorize the
distraining, impounding, and sale of cattle, horses, mules, asses, swine,
sheep, and goats for penalties incurred and the costs of the proceeding. The
sale of animals distrained or impounded shall be conducted, as near as may be
practicable, according to the law regulating sales of property by sheriffs for
the satisfaction of a judgment of the circuit court. The owner of the animals
may redeem them from the purchaser at any time within 3 months from the date of
the sale by paying the amount of the purchaser's bid, with reasonable costs for
their keeping and interest upon the amount bid at the rate of 10% per annum.
The electors may also authorize the impounding of dogs found running at large
and provide for their destruction at the end of a reasonable period of time if
they are not claimed and the cost of impounding paid.
