Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Wildlife Code by making it illegal to wantonly waste or destroy usable meat from game animals. Defines "usable meat" and details locations where individuals may not dispose of harvested wildlife carcasses or parts.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the introduced bill with changes. Makes changes to the definition of "usable meat". Removes language that provides that it is not unlawful to discard game meat if it is damaged or unusable after being placed in a freezer for an extended period of time. Provides that it shall not be unlawful to discard game meat that is determined to be unfit for human consumption (rather than game meat that consists, in whole or in part, of any filthy, putrid, or decomposed substance or is for any reason unsound, unhealthful, or unwholesome).
