9 Failure to comply with provisions applicable to domestic cervidae as set forth
10 in chapters 2, 3, 4 and 6 of title 25, Idaho Code, the provisions of this

22 (3) If the department is unable to collect an assessed civil penalty, or
23 if a person fails to pay all or a set portion of an assessed civil penalty as
24 determined by the department, the department may file an action to recover the
25 civil penalty in the district court of the county in which the violation is

34 state treasury and credited to the livestock disease control and T.B. indem-
35 nity fund.
36 (6) The imposition or computation of monetary penalties shall take into
37 account the seriousness of the violation, good faith efforts to comply with
38 the law, the economic impact of the penalty on the violator and such other
39 matters as justice requires.
40 (7) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as requiring the director
41 to report minor violations when the director believes that the public interest
42 will be best served by suitable warnings or other administrative action.
43 (8) Any person, firm or corporation violating any of the provisions of
1 chapters 2, 3, 4 and 6, title 25, Idaho Code, this chapter, or rules promul-
