If the owner fails to redeem his livestock within 3 days after the notice and demand as provided herein is received or

fully describing the livestock, stating the place, date, and hour of sale posted at the courthouse door and 3 or more
public places in the township where the owner resides, and after 10 days from such posting, the impounder shall sell
the livestock at public auction. If the owner of the livestock remains unknown to the impounder, then, 30 days after
publication of the notice required herein, the impounder shall post at the courthouse door and 3 public places in the
township where the livestock is impounded a written notice fully describing the livestock, and stating the place,
