4714. Importation and possession of animals for hunting

(a) A person

shall not import or possess any live animal for the purpose of taking by

hunting, unless the commissioner has issued the person an importation and

possession permit. The fish and wildlife board shall adopt rules necessary to

establish, implement and enforce the permit and permit process.

(b) An

application for a permit shall be accompanied by a certificate of veterinary

inspection certifying that the animal has been inspected, is not showing signs

of contagious diseases, and has been inventoried, registered, and tested in

accordance with rules of the secretary of agriculture, food and markets. The

commissioner of fish and wildlife may inspect animals being imported under an

importation and possession permit and may dispose of unlawfully imported or

possessed animals. The state may collect treble damages for expenses incurred

in enforcing a violation of this subsection. (Added 1999, No. 30, § 6; amended

2003, No. 42, § 2, eff. May 27, 2003; 2005, No. 12, § 5, eff. May 2, 2005.)
