A: The ordinance you're referring to, Santa Clara County Sec. B14-34.3, specifically addresses the issue of bringing animals onto park property for grazing or holding without permission from the Director. This ordinance is focused on the control of livestock or similar animals within park boundaries.

To determine whether hunting is allowed, you would need to look at different sections of the county's ordinances or regulations. Hunting regulations are typically separate from those governing grazing or animal control. They often involve specific rules about wildlife, hunting seasons, and the use of firearms or other hunting equipment.

For accurate information on hunting regulations in Santa Clara County, you should consult the sections of the county code or state law that specifically address hunting and wildlife management. Additionally, checking with the county's parks department or a local wildlife agency can provide clarity on what is and isn't allowed in terms of hunting in park areas.

Remember, laws and ordinances can be complex, and their interpretation may vary based on context and additional regulations. It's always a good practice to consult directly with legal resources or local authorities for specific guidance on matters like this.
