Bill description: LD 11 is a strong first step toward addressing the multitude of problems associated with keeping wildlife in captivity. Recognizing that possessing a wolf hybrid poses public safety concerns, the bill changes the registration requirement for a wolf hybrid kennel to a licensing requirement. It also directs the state Department of Agriculture to consult with the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife on potential threats to wildlife and public safety prior to issuing a wolf hybrid license.
