Subd. 2.

Disposition of carcasses.

(a) Except as provided in subdivision 1b and
deleted text begin paragraphdeleted text endnew text begin paragraphsnew text end (d)new text begin and (f)new text end, every person owning or controlling any domestic animal
that has died or been killed otherwise than by being slaughtered for human or animal
consumption, shall as soon as reasonably possible bury the carcass at a depth adequate to
prevent scavenging by other animals in the ground or thoroughly burn it or dispose of it
by another method approved by the board as being effective for the protection of public
health and the control of livestock diseases. The board, through its executive director,
may issue permits to owners of rendering plants located in Minnesota which are operated
and conducted as required by law, to transport carcasses of domestic animals and fowl
that have died, or have been killed otherwise than by being slaughtered for human or
animal consumption, over the public highways to their plants for rendering purposes in
accordance with the rules adopted by the board relative to transportation, rendering, and
other provisions the board considers necessary to prevent the spread of disease. The board
may issue permits to owners of rendering plants located in an adjacent state with which a
reciprocal agreement is in effect under subdivision 3.

(b) Carcasses collected by rendering plants under permit may be used for pet food or
mink food if the owner or operator meets the requirements of subdivision 1b.

(c) An authorized employee or agent of the board may enter private or public
property and inspect the carcass of any domestic animal that has died or has been killed
other than by being slaughtered for human or animal consumption. Failure to dispose of
the carcass of any domestic animal within the period specified by this subdivision is
a public nuisance. The board may petition the district court of the county in which a
carcass is located for a writ requiring the abatement of the public nuisance. A civil action
commenced under this paragraph does not preclude a criminal prosecution under this
section. No person may sell, offer to sell, give away, or convey along a public road or on
land the person does not own, the carcass of a domestic animal when the animal died or
was killed other than by being slaughtered for human or animal consumption unless it is
