Turtles and Bullfrogs and Eels . . . oh, my
It's not about right or wrong. People have been eating what they can find, that's edible for as long as we are around. The laws don't have to be changed to "reflect the modern advances in aquaculture." The agents could have investigated and asked for receipts, and maybe go to the farms to check them out for themselves. I am glad to be among those who are open minded about their food, and live in Maryland.
That explains why they no longer have turtles. Thanks for posting this--I knew I should've grabbed a few. I couldn't believe that could go unpunished no matter whether it was legal.
