(a)give notice of that fact to a veterinary inspector; and

(b)arrange for the isolation so far as practicable of the animal concerned and its foetus or calf and placenta from all other bovine animals in that person’s ownership or charge.

(2) An animal to which the provisions of paragraph (1) above apply shall remain in isolation and its foetus or calf and placenta shall be retained by the owner or person in charge of the animal, until such time as a veterinary inspector serves a notice requiring the disposal or destruction of the foetus or calf and placenta.

(3) If any person on whom a notice under paragraph (2) above is served fails to comply with it, the Scottish Ministers may, without prejudice to any proceedings for an offence arising out of such default, carry out or cause to be carried out the requirements of the notice and the expenses reasonably incurred by the Scottish Ministers shall be recoverable by them from the person in default.
