                        CHAPTER 121-H.F.No. 340 
           An act relating to natural resources; allowing elk to 
          be bred on game and fur farms; amending Minnesota 
          Statutes 1986, section 97A.105, subdivision 1. 
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 97A.105, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read:  
    Subdivision 1.  [LICENSE REQUIREMENTS.] A person may breed 
and propagate fur-bearing animals, game birds, bear, elk, or 
deer only on privately owned or leased land and after obtaining 
a license.  "Privately owned or leased land" includes waters 
that are shallow or marshy, are not actually navigable, and are 
not of substantial beneficial public use.  Before an application 
for a license is considered, the applicant must enclose the area 
to sufficiently confine the animals to be raised in a manner 
approved by the commissioner.  A license may be granted only if 
the commissioner finds the application is made in good faith 
with intention to actually carry on the business described in 
the application and the commissioner determines that the 
facilities are adequate for the business.
