Part 2. Indemnity

Sale Of Condemned Carcasses -- Disposition Of Proceeds

81-2-208. Sale of condemned carcasses -- disposition of proceeds. When the carcass of an animal ordered destroyed under this chapter is found on official postmortem inspection to be fit for human consumption, the owner must receive the net proceeds from the sale of the carcass. The proceeds must be deducted from the owner's claim against the state and county for the slaughter. A representative of the department may, when considered advisable or necessary or when it is desired by the owner, sell the carcass on terms that the representative considers to be in the best interests of this state, and the net proceeds obtained from the sale must be paid to the owner. This procedure does not invalidate the owner's claim for indemnity for any balance due the owner.
