LA Civ Code 3413 What's This?

Art. 3413. Wild animals, birds, fish, and shellfish

Wild animals, birds, fish, and shellfish in a state of natural liberty either belong to the state in its capacity as a public person or are things without an owner. The taking of possession of such things is governed by particular laws and regulations.

The owner of a tract of land may forbid entry to anyone for purposes of hunting or fishing, and the like. Nevertheless, despite a prohibition of entry, captured wildlife belongs to the captor.

Acts 1982, No. 187, §1, eff. Jan. 1, 1983.
