reason to know, that the animal bit another person, he or she shall, as soon as
is practicable, but no later than 48 hours thereafter, provide the other person
with his or her name, address, telephone number, and the name and license tag
number of the animal who bit the other person. If the person with custody or
control of the animal at the time the bite occurs is a minor, he or she shall
instead provide identification or contact information of an adult owner or
responsible party. If the animal is required by law to be vaccinated against
rabies, the person owning or having custody or control of the animal shall,
within 48 hours of the bite, provide the other person with information regarding
the status of the animal's vaccinations. Violation of this section is an
infraction punishable by a fine of not more than one hundred dollars ($100).
(b) For purposes of this section, it is necessary for the skin of
the person to be broken or punctured by the animal for the contact to be
classified as a bite.
