    Injurious Wildlife Listing Enacted Today
    Today US Fish & Wildlife Service enacted a rule adding four constricting snakes to the Injurious Wildlife List of the Lacey Act; Burmese python, N. African python, S. African python and Yellow anaconda. It will now be a felony to import or cross state lines with these four animals, their eggs, or their hybrids. Possession, breeding and trade within your state is allowed unless there is a state law violated. Export is allowed as long as the animals exit the country from a designated port of entry without making a connecting flight, or landing within the United States. All flights must directly exit the United States.
    1. NO on IMPORT.
    2. NO on INTERSTATE TRANSPORT.
    3. YES POSSESSION, BREEDING & TRADE IN LEGAL STATES IS ALLOWED.
    4. YES EXPORT THROUGH DESIGNATED PORT OF ENTRY WITH NO US CONNECTION IS ALLOWED.
    5. APPLIES TO EGGS & HYBRIDS.
    6. NO EXCEPTIONS.

    Is this officially a law? Or is it just on the docket?
