GFP Commission Proposes Fur Dealer Rule Changes

May 7, 2018

PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission proposed to create a new rule requiring all fur dealers to list employees/agents on their application who will purchase or contract to purchase fur-bearing animals. In addition, it also allows the department to refuse the issuance of a license to a fur dealer with an employee/agent who has received a suspension or revocation of their fur dealer’s license or who has been denied issuance of a license.

The rule is similar to a rule change the Commission passed earlier this year for commercial bait dealers.

The GFP Commission will consider the adoption of this proposal on June 7 in Aberdeen. To comment in person, the public hearing will be held June 7 in Aberdeen at 2 p.m. CDT. Individuals can also provide written comments on proposals by sending them to 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD 57501, or online at https://gfp.sd.gov/forms/positions/. To be included in the public record and to be considered by the Commission, comments must include a full name and city of residence and meet the submission deadline of 72 hours before the public hearing (not including the day of the public hearing).
