36. The holder of a wildlife rehabilitation centre licence shall not keep an animal for rehabilitation purposes for more than 1 year; the licence holder must take all necessary means to avoid the domestication of the animal.
Once an animal is rehabilitated, the licence holder shall set it free in the wild if it is fit to survive there. If not, the holder may kill it or give it to a wildlife protection officer; the wildlife protection officer may kill the animal or entrust it to any person entitled to keep it.
