RS 56:112     

§112.  Disposal of birds or quadrupeds becoming a nuisance

A.  If any species of wild bird or wild quadruped shall become so destructive of private property as to be a nuisance, the secretary may direct any officer authorized to enforce the provisions of this Subpart, or any reputable citizen of this state, to take and dispose of such species of bird or quadruped in the manner and under the conditions specified by the secretary.

B.  The commission is authorized to promulgate rules and regulations in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act to permit the taking and disposal of any outlaw quadrupeds or outlaw birds when such quadrupeds or birds become so destructive of private or public property as to become a nuisance. Notwithstanding the provisions of R.S. 56:116.1(B)(1) or any other law to the contrary, the rules shall allow the taking of outlaw quadruped or outlaw birds by use of aircraft. The rules shall prohibit the sale of the animal or any part thereof. The taking of any outlaw quadruped or outlaw birds under this Section is for the purpose of taking depredating quadrupeds and birds and is independent from the taking of wild quadrupeds and wild birds under any other Section of this Title. Any person authorized to take any outlaw quadruped or outlaw bird under this Section shall be exempt from obtaining any other permits or licenses under this Title while engaged in taking such animals pursuant to this Section or any rules and regulations promulgated pursuant to this Section.
