Summary:   This Vermont law reflects the state's hunter harassment provision. The law states that a person shall not intentionally interfere with the lawful taking of fish or wild animals by another nor intentionally harass, drive or disturb fish or any wild animal for the purpose of disrupting lawful taking. It also separately provides that a person shall not take, injure, destroy or wilfully interfere with a lawfully set trap.


Statute in Full:

 

(a) A person shall not intentionally interfere with the lawful taking of fish or wild animals by another nor intentionally harass, drive or disturb fish or any wild animal for the purpose of disrupting the lawful taking of the same. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to prohibit any incidental interference arising from lawful activity by land users including farmers and recreationists.

(b) A person shall not take, injure, destroy or wilfully interfere with:

(1) a trap, when lawfully set for the purpose of taking wild animals, or

(2) wilfully interfere with a person in the act of trapping animals.
