About Exotic Species

In order to protect Montana's native wildlife and plant species, livestock, horticultural, forestry, and agricultural production, and human health and safety, it is necessary to regulate the importation for introduction and the transplantation or introduction of wildlife in the state and to regulate the importation, transplantation, possession, and sale of exotic wildlife.

Any importation, transplantation, possession, sale, or introduction permitted must be conducted in a manner to ensure that wildlife or exotic wildlife can be controlled if harm arises from unforeseen effects.

Prohibited species, unless authorized by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, may not be imported, possessed, sold, purchased, exchanged, or transported in Montana. The same applies for any species not classified.

Controlled species may be imported into the state however, specific control measures for each species must be adhered to.
