Wisconsin Assembly Bill 703 was introduced January 31, 2014 and has its first public hearing February 4, 2014. View it at www.docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2013/related/proposals/ab703. This bill makes changes to the laws relating to the possession of certain wild animals. It impacts these reptile species immediately: Crocodylia: an alligator of any species, crocodile of any species, caiman of any species, or gharial.

The reason for alarm with this bill is that it gives the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) rulemaking power to add any species of animal as “harmful wild animal.” That means DNR could list additional species as “wild animals” without public input: “The law authorizes DNR to designate other wild animals that satisfy specified criteria as harmful wild animals.”
