Abstract

Two classes of game farm permits were made available by the 1957 legislature to persons keeping protected species of wildlife in captivity. A pet or fancier permit authorizes the possession of fifty or less game birds or game animals where no commercial use is made of such wildlife. A commercial permit authorizes the possession of game birds and game and fur-bearing animals of regardless of number, where trade, sale, barter, or any commercial use is involved. During 1960, 195 pet permits and 92 commercial permits were issued for a total of 287 permits. In 1959 a total of 432 permits were issued. In 1960 the fee for a pet permit was $1.00 and the fee for a commercial permit was $10.00. The revenue for 287 permits was $1,115.00 as compared to $1,467.00 received for 432 permits in 1959.
