Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill eliminates the requirement that a person hunting bear or wolf with a
dog carry certain tags for the dog.
Under current law, the owner of a dog is required to have the dog vaccinated
against rabies. The owner is required to attach a rabies vaccination tag to a collar
that, subject to exceptions, must be worn by the dog at all times. One exception
provides that this requirement does not apply to a dog while hunting.
Under current law, while a person is using a dog to hunt bear or wolf, the person
is required to keep on his or her person tags indicating that the person has been
issued a license for the dog and the dog has been vaccinated against rabies. This bill
eliminates these requirements.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
29.184 (4) (b) of the statutes is repealed.
29.185 (6) (c) 3. of the statutes is repealed.
