(from Ch. 61, par. 3.15)
Purchase of green hides.
Any manufacturer, converter, or consumer who purchases or receives
green hides of fur-bearing mammals for the purpose of dressing and
fabricating them into fur
garments or products, shall purchase such green hides from a duly
licensed fur buyer or fur-bearing mammal breeder, and shall demand from
the buyer or breeder an
invoice covering such purchases, indicating thereon the date of the transaction,
and address of the fur buyer or fur-bearing mammal breeder, and the number and kinds of
green hides so purchased. Such invoices shall be presented for inspection
to officers and authorized employees
of the Department, any sheriff, deputy sheriff, or any other peace officer
when request is made for same. Failure to produce such invoice shall be
prima facie evidence that such green hides are contraband within this State.
Such purchases of green hides of fur-bearing or game mammals
shall be made for converting or
manufacturing purposes only, and green hides so bought shall not be offered
for resale in the green or raw condition.
