§ 11-0511. Possession and transportation of wildlife.

Subject to the provisions of section 11-0512 of this article, no
person shall, except under a license or permit first obtained from the
department containing the prominent warning notice specified in
subdivision nine of section 11-0917 of this article, possess, transport
or cause to be transported, imported or exported any live wolf, wolfdog,
coyote, coydog, fox, skunk, raccoon, venomous reptile, endangered
species designated pursuant to section 11-0535 of this title, species
named in section 11-0536 of this title or other species of native or
non-native live wildlife or fish where the department finds that
possession, transportation, importation or exportation of such species
of wildlife or fish would present a danger to the health or welfare of
the people of the state, an individual resident or indigenous fish or
wildlife population. Environmental conservation officers, forest rangers
and members of the state police may seize every such animal possessed
without such license or permit. No action for damages shall lie for such
seizure, and disposition of seized animals shall be at the discretion of
the department.
