Sauk County discusses the law that mandates that any owner of a dog or cat must quarantine their animal if it attacks.  

In short, if your dog or cat bites someone it is Wisconsin law that the animal be quarantined so it can be observed for rabies.  Obviously, you should call the police first and then work with them and your veterinarian to make sure the animal that attacked is up to date on all vaccines.

Remember that the owner of the animal is responsible for the costs of the quarantine.  So, be sure to read your insurance policy to see if this will be covered under your home owner’s insurance policy.
