CITES Tag Request


Welcome to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources CITES Tag Request Application for Bobcat and River Otter. You must login to My Profile before you are able to submit requests.

CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement that aims to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten the survival of the species. In Kentucky, this tag is issued by Kentucky Fish and Wildlife and must be attached to the raw fur, pelt or unskinned carcass of any bobcat or river otter taken in Kentucky if the hunter or trapper intends to sell or export internationally. For more information about Tagging and Transporting Harvested animals, check here.
