The incidence of disease communicated to human beings by contact with pet animals
has shown an increase in the past few years. The danger to human beings from such pets infected with disease communicable to
humans has demonstrated the necessity for legislation to authorize the secretary of
the department of health and the state board of health to take such action as is necessary
to control the sale, importation, movement, transfer, or possession of such animals
where it becomes necessary in order to protect the public health and welfare.
