Violations of Wasteful Wildlife Destruction Laws

Each state has strict laws governing illegal killing, possession and waste of wildlife. There natural resources are a precious commodity that the state needs to protect and care for. Safeguarding these assets allows all individuals, not just hunters and fishermen, to be able to enjoy them in the future. Determination of what is considered waste by wildlife officials is not always valid, as the officer has the authority to make an arbitrary ruling on whether the amount of the carcass taken was sufficient or not. When an individual commits the offense of illegally killing or possessing certain species, or wasting a kill, these charges are serious and can lead to stiff fines, penalties and even jail time. If you find yourself facing this situation, it is important to contact a wildlife violation defense attorney from to protect your rights.

State laws specifically state that any person who hunts any wildlife and detaches and removes only certain parts of the body, such as the hide, claws, teeth, antlers, horns or feathers and leaves behind the carcass can be assessed large fines and possibly lose their hunting privileges for life. Illegal killing of wildlife which is not in season, is not on the list allowed to be hunted, or is killed in excess of the legal bag limit, can all be punishable as well. Possessing wildlife that is not authorized to be hunted or in excess of bag limits is also restricted and is considered in violation of Wildlife Destruction laws.
