Destruction of animals; disposition of carcasses
Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 5
§ 85. Destruction of animals; disposition of carcasses. The
commissioner may prescribe rules for the destruction of animals affected
with infectious or communicable disease, and for the proper disposal of
their hides and carcasses and all objects which might carry infection or
contagion. Whenever in his judgment necessary for the more speedy and
economical suppression or prevention of the spread of any such disease
he may cause to be slaughtered and afterward disposed of, in such manner
as he may deem expedient, any animal or animals which by contact or
association with diseased animals or other exposure to infection or
contagion may be considered or suspected to be liable to contract or
communicate the disease sought to be suppressed or prevented. The
commissioner may seize and cause to be destroyed a carcass or any
portion thereof affected with any communicable disease.
