N.J. Admin. Code § 7:25-10.13 - Miscellaneous provisions

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Any person who transfers possession, as distinguished from ownership, or location of any game animal or game bird for which a permit has been issued, shall, within 48 hours, report in writing to the division exactly which animal(s) was transferred, the name and address of the person to whom the animal(s) was transferred and the location to which the animal(s) was transferred. No transfer shall be permitted without prior written approval of the division of a potentially dangerous species as defined at 7:25-10.10.
(b) Any person, issued a permit, who violates or fails to continually conform to the criteria established for the issuance of his permit, shall be considered to have violated an express condition of the permit and shall be deemed to be in possession of the animal or bird without a permit. Permit violators shall be subject to prosecution for possession of the animal or bird without a permit, and may be subject to the penalty prescribed by statute.
(c) No person shall acquire additional game animals or game birds under any one permit without prior written permission from the division. Progeny of permitted captive game animals or game birds are exempt from this requirement provided the permittee can biologically substantiate the increase in numbers from permitted captive game animals or game birds and reports the increase on the annual inventory report.
(d) As a condition of any permit issued under this subchapter the division may require the permitted game animal or game bird be quarantined for the period specified by the division.
(e) Any permittee shall allow division personnel, at any reasonable time, to inspect the housing facilities of the permitted species to determine compliance with the permit requirements and criteria.
(f) Nothing in this subchapter relative to the possession of Game Animals and Game Birds is intended to preempt any federal, state, or local requirement that is more stringent nor exempt any person from obtaining any permit required by these governmental entities.
(g) Game animals and birds possessed under these permits may be dispatched in a manner as directed by 23:3-31 for legitimate purpose, including, but not limited to, the following:
1. Euthanasia of sick, injured or surplus animals, in order to cull individuals to prevent overcrowding or spread of disease; such euthanasia can also be ordered by the Commissioner when necessary to prevent spread of disease;
2. To utilize as food, or to utilize the hide, skin, or other body parts; record-keeping and tagging requirements must comply with those described in 23:3-28 to 39;
3. Euthanasia by an agent of the Division or as ordered by the Commissioner;
4. When an animal creates a danger or serious threat to persons or other animals as determined by the Commissioner; or
