Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers conferred by clause (i) of subsection (2) of Section 38 of the

2. Capture of Birds:
No bird shall be captured for the purpose of sale, export or for any other purpose except by net method.

Explanation: A bird is said to be captured by the net method if in its capture the following contrivance is
used, namely, a contrivance made of spun thread which is soft, pliable and sufficiently strong, like cotton,
jute or any synthetic fibre, woven in such a way as to form a mesh of suitable size so that the bird is
captured without any injury being caused to it.


3. Capture of other animals:
(i) No animal shall be captured for the purpose of sale, export or for any other purpose except by sack
and loop method.
Provided that an animal which cannot be captured by reason of its size, nature of other condition or
circumstances by the sack and loop method, may be captured with the help of tranquiliser guns or by any
other method which renders the animal insensible to pain before capture


(2) Nothing in this rule shall apply to the capture of birds.


Explanation : An animal is said to be captured by the sack and loop method if in its capture the following
contrivance is used, namely a strong canvass in the form of sack, not less than 92 cms. in length and 138
cms in diameter, which has a smooth rope, not less than 5.5 meter in length passing through ten or more
rings of not less than 4 cms. in diameter each attached at the open end, thus forming a loop, the sack
having small holes at convenient places to enable the animal to breathe during captivity, and the animal is
captured by the sack being thrown on it and secured by having the loop pulled.
