BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A Bozeman-area company that provides wildlife for films and television shows is fighting the state’s decision to revoke its license for violations found during an inspection.

Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1THT8Um ) that a law firm representing Animals of Montana Inc. sent a letter to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks requesting a hearing to protest the department’s decision to pull its menagerie license. The company’s attorney, Chuck Watson, claims the state enforced its rules “arbitrarily and capriciously.”

FWP said it found the company had committed 25 violations in 2015. The violations included not having enough water or space for the animals and moving the animals within the state without permission.

Animals of Montana Inc. owns an African lion, a grizzly bear, two species of wolf and other animals.
