inflicted serious bodily injury on a human shall be fined not more than one thousand dollars or

imprisoned with or without hard labor, for not more than two years, or both.

D.(1) Any health care provider, as provided in R.S. 40:1231.1, who examines or treats any

shall report such bite or injury to the law enforcement or animal control agency for the location

where the bite or injury occurred. Such report shall be made immediately, if possible, and in any

event shall be made within twenty-four hours.

(2) The report shall include as much of the following information as is available:
