§

5215. Game refuges; how created; regulations

(a) For a

specified period of years, the commissioner may prohibit or regulate the taking

of wild animals upon public lands set aside with the approval of the governor

or upon private lands set aside with the consent of the owner thereof, for game

refuges. At least 30 days before such a prohibition or regulation takes effect,

he or she shall file a copy of the same in the office of the town clerk of the

town in which such lands lie. Notices reading "State Game Refuge; hunting

is unlawful" shall be placed at conspicuous places on the boundaries of

refuges.

(b) Upon receipt

of a fee of $50.00, the commissioner may issue a permit to a person,

organization or group for the purpose of rehabilitating sick or injured wild

animals. For the purposes of this subsection, rehabilitation means treating the

sick or injured wild animal back to a sufficient state of health so that the

animal may be returned to the wild. The commissioner shall adopt rules to

implement this subsection. (Added 1961, No. 119, § 1, eff. May 9, 1961; amended
