A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §20-2-11a, relating to McKinsie's Law; prohibiting the exposure of any game that has been gutted or cleaned from the public's view when reasonably possible; and providing a penalty.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §20-2-11a, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 2. WILDLIFE RESOURCES.

§20-2-11a. Exposing gutted game to the public prohibited; penalties.

A person may not expose any game that has been gutted or cleaned to the public without making reasonable efforts to conceal the game from the public's view when reasonably possible. "Gutted or cleaned" means removing the hair, skin or inner organs of any game.
A person that violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not less than fifty dollars nor more than one hundred dollars. A person that violates this section for a second offense or subsequent offense is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be fined not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars.




NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to establish McKinsie's Law by prohibiting the exposure of any game that has been gutted or cleaned from the public's view when reasonably possible; and to provide a penalty.

This section is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
