(510 ILCS 70/11)
(from Ch. 8, par. 711)
(a) If an investigation under Section 10 discloses that a
violation of this Act has been committed, the approved humane investigator
shall furnish the
violator, if known, with a notice of violation, and state what action
is necessary to come into compliance with this Act and that a maximum of
48 hours may be granted in which to take corrective action.
(b) If the violator fails or refuses to take corrective action necessary
for compliance or if the violator is still unknown after an attempt to identify
ownership, the humane investigator shall contact the Department and request
authorization to impound the animal or animals. The Department will authorize
impoundment if a review of facts gathered by the humane investigator indicates
a violation of Section 3 of this Act has occurred and the violator, if known,
has failed or refused to take corrective action necessary for compliance.
This Section shall not apply to violations committed
under Section 4.01 of this Act.
