(b) Facilities approved by the Department by December 18, 1997, are deemed to comply with the new requirements of Exhibit 1.

(c) The department may, in its discretion, approve facilities that do not meet the specifications of Exhibit 1 if the department finds that such facilities provide safeguards equivalent to those required by Exhibit 1. The burden is on the applicant to demonstrate equivalency.

Holding Pure-Bred Gray Wolf or Wolves in Captivity

This rule governs the holding in captivity of pure-bred wolves in Oregon, with the objective of protecting the public’s native wildlife.

(1) The only persons who may hold pure-bred wolves in captivity are those who, as of December 31, 2009, held a gray wolf or wolves in captivity under previous Oregon Department of Agriculture, Class I Exotic Canine, Exotic Animal Division 603 Rules or held a valid license or registration from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, under the federal Animal Welfare Act of 1970. These persons may hold only gray wolves, and only if they obtain authority under the requirements of paragraphs (4) or (5) of this rule.

(2) Beyond the persons described in paragraph (1), the Department will not issue any new permits to hold a pure-bred wolf in captivity.

(3) For the purpose of this rule, a wolf is considered “pure-bred” so long as it does not include any hybrid cross with a domestic dog or other canine. The Department will determine pure-bred status based on written documentation that may include breeding records, records of acquisition and disposition transactions and sworn statements.

(4) To maintain the authority to hold pure-bred gray wolves in captivity, a person described in paragraph (1) must:

(a) No later than 30 days before the expiration date printed on the permit issued by either the Department or the Department of Agriculture which authorized the person to keep one or more wolves in captivity:

(A) Apply to the Department for a captive wolf holding permit, using a form provided by the Department. Such permits will have a term of two years and may include, but are not limited to, conditions designed to protect native wildlife and human safety;

(B) Pay the Department a fee of $100 (plus a $2.00 license agent fee);

(C) Demonstrate to the Department that the person’s wolf holding facility meets the minimum special requirement standards for Class I Exotic Canines under the Oregon Department of Agriculture rules (OAR 603-011-0725) in effect as of April 1, 2010; and

(D) Certify to the Department that the person’s wolf handling facility complies with any applicable city or county ordinances and any applicable federal laws.

(b) Obtain written authorization from the Department before transferring a pure-bred gray wolf to another facility or releasing any pure-bred gray wolf into the wild;

(c) Not import, export, purchase, sell or exchange any pure-bred gray wolf; and

(d) Comply with the terms of any permit issued by the Department.

(5) Notwithstanding subparagraph (4)(a) above, a person who qualifies to hold a pure-bred gray wolf under paragraph (1) through possessing an exhibitor permit from the U.S. Department of Agriculture does not need to obtain a wolf holding permit from the Department so long as the person maintains the person’s federal permit. However, the person must still comply with the requirements of subparagraphs (4)(b) and (c).

(6) The Department may revoke a wolf holding permit if the Department determines that the person has violated these rules or the terms of the permit. If the Department proposes to revoke a person’s wolf holding permit, the person may request a contested case hearing within 14 days of notice of the proposal.
