70-4-407. Transfer of Class I wildlife Notification.

(a)  Prior to the transfer of any Class I wildlife to a new owner, the prospective owner must provide the seller with proper documentation of an approved holding facility for that species. Proper documentation consists of a copy of a current permit for that species or a letter from the Tennessee wildlife resources agency stating that the facilities have been inspected and are approved. Any transfer without approved holding facilities is a violation of this part by the seller, who shall provide housing for the animal at such seller's cost until the transferee can provide approved facilities or until final court actions are concluded. If the seller does not provide housing, such seller shall be liable for costs incurred by the agency for providing such housing.

(b)  Permittees must notify the agency of any transfer of Class I wildlife within five (5) days of the transfer on forms provided by the agency.
