or locomotives operating on a railroad, the section master or employee of the railroad
having charge of the road at the place where the injury or death occurred shall, if
he knows of the incident or should have known of it, within seventy-two hours, notify
the owner of the animal or animals or the local law-enforcement agency of the injury
or death and the location of the incident in relationship to state routes as well
as railroad mile posts. Disposal of any such animal or animals without proper notification shall constitute
a Class 1 misdemeanor.
