Public Hearing Set for Falconry, Camel Rule Changes
CONCORD, N.H. -- The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold a public hearing to discuss proposed rule changes regarding falconry and camels on August 5, 2005, at 10 a.m. at N.H. Fish and Game headquarters on Hazen Drive in Concord.
Fish and Game is proposing to adopt rules relative to falconry including permit requirements, application and renewal procedures, permit classes, housing requirements, and marking, acquisition and disposition of raptors. These rules were previously effective on an interim basis.
The proposal also includes changes to the import and possession rules for camels, to remove them from controlled status and list them as "non-controlled," similar to the way in which llamas and alpacas are treated.
Written comments must be received by August 15, 2005. Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line should say "Rules"); or mail to Executive Director, N.H. Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH 03301; or fax to (603) 271-1438.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
