No bounty shall be paid on the head of a wolf unless it has its ears when delivered to the selectmen (Repealed)

Chapter 133 § 1

If any person shall kill any wolf or wolf’s whelp within this State, and shall produce the head thereof to the selectmen of the town within which it was killed; or if there be no selectmen in such town, then to the selectmen of the nearest town having such officers; and shall prove to the satisfaction of such selectmen that such wolf or wolf’s whelp was killed by himself or by some person whose agent he is; the selectmen shall cut off the ears from the head so produced, and shall otherwise so disfigure the same that it shall never again be offered for a bounty, and shall pay to such person or his order twenty dollars for every wolf and ten dollars for every wolf’s whelp killed as aforesaid.
