Hawaii Bill Would Establish Greater Oversight of Hunting Dogs and Hunters Who Use Them

Hawaii Senate Bill 3306 would require anyone who owns, harbors, possesses, or utilizes a dog for hunting purposes to microchip each dog to facilitate animal shelters and law enforcement holding owners responsible for abused, neglected, and abandoned hunting dogs. The bill further would require hunting licensees who breed dogs to obtain a hunting dog breeding license from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
