Iowa Bill Would Allow Owners of Agricultural Properties to Kill Fur Bearing Animals

Iowa Senate File 358 would allow individuals to kill fur-bearing animals that the owner or tenant of “an agricultural property or an associated residence” deems to be a nuisance, unless the animals are protected by the state or federal Endangered Species Act. The bill has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Environment, which approved the bill on February 22, 2023.
