V.S.A. §4001(23) of the Vermont statutes defines take and taking as:
"pursuing, shooting, hunting, killing, capturing, trapping, snaring, and
netting fish, birds and quadrupeds and all lesser acts, such as disturbing,
harrying or worrying or wounding or placing, setting, drawing or using any net
or other device commonly used to take fish or wild animals, whether they result
in the taking or not; and shall include every attempt to take and every act of
assistance to every other person in taking or attempting to take fish or wild
animals, provided that when taking is allowed by law, reference is had to
taking by lawful means and in lawful manner."
For plants, in accordance
V.S.A. §5401(14) "taking" means uprooting, transplanting, cutting, injuring
or killing or any attempt to do the same or assisting another who is doing or
is attempting to do the same.
