The animal health commissioner shall have power to call upon any sheriff, undersheriff
or deputy sheriff to execute the commissioner's orders. Such officers shall obey the orders of the commissioner and for performing such
services shall receive mileage and fees as is now provided for service in process
in civil actions. For killing and disposing of diseased animals, in accordance with the rules prescribed
by the animal health commissioner, such officers shall receive the following fees:
(1) For the first animal, not to exceed $5; (2) for each additional animal, not to
exceed $2; but in no case shall the amount exceed the actual cost of doing such work. Such fees shall be paid by the board of county commissioners of the county in which
the services are rendered. Any such officer may arrest on view and take before any judge of a court of competent
jurisdiction of the county any person found violating the provisions of this act,
and such officer shall immediately notify the county or district attorney of such
arrest, and such county or district attorney shall prosecute the person so offending
according to law.
