§ 713. Carcass Condemnation for Diseased, Injured, or Chemically Immobilized Big-Game Species.
(a) The Director may authorize Department employees to condemn the carcass of a diseased, injured, or chemically immobilized big-game animal (as defined in Section 350) that was lawfully taken and lawfully possessed under a license tag that is, in the opinion of the employee, unfit for human consumption, if the individual who took the animal requests it and this condition was not created by the actions of the individual who took the animal. A Department employee may condemn a big-game carcass that was chemically immobilized if the animal was taken during the established withdrawal period of that immobilizing drug.
(b) The individual who took the carcass shall surrender the entire condemned carcass and any parts thereof to the Department employee or dispose of it as instructed by the Department employee.
(c) After condemnation and surrender or verification of the appropriate disposal of the carcass as instructed by a department employee, the department employee shall provide written authorization to the tag holder who took the animal to, at their discretion, choose one of the following options:
(1) Purchase and use a duplicate tag subject to the fees established in Section 702 for the remainder of the current season under which the animal was taken; or
(2) Participate in the next big-game drawing for that species with one additional preference point added to the number of preference points the tag holder had when they obtained the original tag.
