Re: Getting an owl done
Certain places such as a school can get a permit for these types of birds, but an individual will never get a permit. There may be ways a Native American can, but I don't know them and from what I've read it would still be very hard to get a permit. Owls, and other birds of prey, are regulated by the federal government (USFW). I'm surprised the PAGC JUST told you to throw it out. Just picking it up was illegal, and had your relative called USFW, they might have come out to do more than just look at it. Just because they are sold online doesn't make it legal. Most if not all are just the opposite, but there are some non-native birds of prey that are legal.
