Re: Legal or not?

I did a google search when I might have had to move to diff states in the usa (I\'m in Canada right now). & I contacted ppl in the conservation dept. & everyone said my guy was legal & I\'d only need a temp permit to bring him accross the border

So email some people & see what they say.

I did loads of research on feeding raw meats to tur...
