The rules shall be no more restrictive upon keepers of exotic animals than is reasonably necessary to carry out the purposes of ORS 609.309 (Policy on exotic animals).

(2) The department may revoke a permit upon finding a violation of rules adopted under this section, or the department may issue a finding of violation and a warning to remedy the violation by a specified date. [1985 c.437 §7; 1999 c.699 §9; 2009 c.492 §6]
