In lieu of daily reporting requirements, Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators (persons and/or businesses who kill, capture, transport, or release damage-causing wildlife for profit) may report annually if authorized by the Department (Missouri Wildlife Code, 3 CSR 10-4.130). Initial authorization may occur at any time. Annual authorization in successive years shall occur on or after January 1, but prior to March 1. Failure to comply with reporting requirements may be considered a violation of the Wildlife Code. Wildlife captured or killed shall be disposed of only in accordance with the instructions of an agent of the department.
This authorization does not allow the capture or killing of white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, turkeys, black bears, mountain lions, and any endangered species. The capture or killing of migratory birds (including raptors) is subject to federal regulations.
