The Act allows the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to issue permits to trap, transport and release, or kill wildlife and feral hogs when such action is otherwise prohibited by law. The law allows removal of white-tailed deer from airport property, only in the interest of public safety. With respect to fur-bearing animals, the DNR must approve and implement a bona fide wildlife management plan, and with respect to feral hogs, DNR-approved activities must comply with the Georgia Department of Agriculture's rules and regulations. The DNR must prescribe all methods and details of animal control. Furthermore, the DNR cannot issue a permit to remove any species protected by the federal Endangered Species Act of 1973, or any other state law or regulation that protects endangered or threatened species.
