SYNOPSIS: Under existing law, the Commissioner of
Conservation and Natural Resources may issue an
annual permit to a person at a cost of $25
authorizing the person to possess wildlife for
public exhibition purposes.

This bill would allow the commissioner to
also establish reasonable and necessary fees in
amounts sufficient to cover the costs of
administering and enforcing the wildlife public
exhibition regulations.

This bill would also delete the provision
that the wildlife public exhibition regulations do
not apply to privately owned traveling zoos and
would provide that the regulations do not apply to
[circuses, pet shops] four-year universities, provided that the
guidelines of the institutions’ Institutional
Animal Care and Use Committee are followed.
