MAIN LAW

The regulation of live wildlife, native and exotic, is governed by Chapter 10.  There is a list of domestic and domesticated animals and exempt wildlife that do not require a permit, wildlife that need a permit and wildlife that is prohibited for possession.  A summary of some of these animals can be found here.  Applications for permits must include scientific data that the animal will not threaten native wildlife in regards to competition, damage, or destruction of habitat, disruption of migration, breeding or rearing and survival of young, predation, disease, and hybridization. 


NATIVE SPECIES


BANS private ownership of trophy animals (black bears, grizzly bears, and mountain lions), big game animals, wolves, and wolf hybrids.  (Wyoming Statutes 23-3-103, 23-3-301) 

Possession of game birds requires a game bird farm license.
(Wyoming Statutes 23-3-116; Wyoming Rules F&G Ch. 40)
