(a) a person in charge of any animal whose name is unknown contravenes any of the provisions of this Act; and
(b) such person is not arrested and taken into custody,
it is lawful for the court, upon the complaint of any person who was present when the offence was committed and can identify the animal, to summon the owner of the animal before him or her to disclose the name of the person who was in charge of the animal at the time when the offence was committed, in order that such person may be proceeded against according to law.
(a) the owner of the animal refuses or neglects to attend after having been summoned; or
(b) in case he or she attends but refuses to disclose the name of the person who was in charge of the animal,
the owner commits an offence and is liable to the same penalty that the person who was in charge of the animal, if known, would have been subject and liable to under the provisions of this Act.
