2019 LDWF Alligator Regulations - Page 13



m. An alligator hunter or alligator farmer may give alligator parts to
anyone for personal use. Any part of an alligator shall have affixed thereto the
name, address, date, hide tag number, and the license number of the person
donating the alligator part(s). This information shall be legibly written in pen
or pencil on any piece of paper or cardboard or any material which is attached
to the part(s) or to the container enclosing the part or parts. This information
must remain affixed until the part(s) has been stored at the domicile of the
possessor. Violation of this Subparagraph is a Class Two violation as described
in Title 56.
n.i. R.S. 56:280, passed in the regular session of the 1992 Louisiana
Legislature established a state policy which protects white or albino alligators
and except under department permit prohibits the taking of white or albino
alligators from the wild.
ii. Conditions under which any alligator that is white or albino may
be taken from the wild and under official department permit include:
(a). landowners or licensed alligator farmers or ranching operators
may capture live and unharmed a white or albino alligator for its own
protection. All such instances of possession shall be reported immediately to
the department;
(b). any white or albino alligator hatchling produced from wild
collected eggs authorized by a department alligator egg collection permit will
remain in the possession of such licensed operators. Any white or albino
hatchling must be reported immediately upon hatching to the department on a
standard activity report form;
(c). any person who unintentionally takes from the wild any
alligator that is white or albino by hook and line shall immediately report its
presence and location to the department. Department personnel of the Coastal
and Nongame Resources Division will on a case by case basis determine the
disposition of any such white or albino alligator which is unintentionally
hooked.
iii. Any white or albino hatchling produced from a licensed breeding
pen will remain in the possession of such licensed operators but must be
reported immediately upon hatching to the department on a standard activity
report.
iv. It shall be a violation if any person intentionally takes from the
wild any alligator that is white or albino by any means.
