Technically not declaring livestock to the post office is a violation of
postal regs. This makes the interstate transport of the wildlife illegal,
thus the Lacy Act violations. It doesn't have to be a protected species, the
Lacy Act is a broad blanket act that covers all illegal transport of wildlife
whether it be fish, fowl, mammal, reptile or arthropod. All I'm reporting is
how my friend and Fish and Wildlife have explained it to me. This may be a
stricter than normal interpretation but they made it stick to my frien Eric.
