Vermin means wild animals which are believed to be harmful
Legally speaking, if a species is declared vermin, that particular species can be hunted or culled without restriction
Any species can be declared vermin except:
Section 62 of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972 empowers the states to send a list of wild animals to the Centre requesting it to declare them vermin for selective slaughter.
For the period the notification is in force such wild animal shall be included in Schedule V of the law, depriving them of any protection under that law.
The hunted wildlife is declared as government property and it imposes restrictions on how these carcasses must be disposed of.
