I checked with my local postmaster today and she said she has heard of no
such regulation concerning shutting down shipping of live animals for the
summer. She said she has NEVER heard of such a thing and certainly if it
was a department wide decision, she would have heard something. Gator,
sounds like you just have a lazy postal worker or they have a personal
agenda they are promoting. I'd take it up the line to the regional

Somewhere around here I have the regs for shipping live animals at the post
office. It does say that it is up to each individual postmaster to determine
whether or not to accept the animals for shipment. If the postmaster feels
that the weather etc is not acceptable they canrefuse to ship the animals.
One of my local postal clerks was kind enough to photocopy it for me when I
asked about shipping some coral fragments. What I tool away from my
conversation with the clerk was that if the postmaster didn't wwant to ship
live animals through that branch they could refuse to accept any. Also FWIW I
have also recieved live fish and corals via UPS and Fed Ex
