Deleterious exotic wildlife are animals that pose a serious potential
to native wildlife or habitat. With few exceptions (such as for research
display), it is unlawful to import into the state, hold, possess,
offer for sale, sell, transfer, or release live specimens of deleterious
exotic wildlife, their gametes or embryos. (See Washington Administrative
Code [WAC] 232-12-017 and 232-12-01701.) To report violations or for more
information, please contact your local Washington Department of Fish and
Wildlife (WDFW) Enforcement program, or call the Enforcement office at
headquarters (360-902-2936). Please note that importation of all wild
animals (including captive wild animal species) must be in compliance
Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) regulations as well as
WDFW regulations (WAC 232-12-064). For questions regarding WSDA
