The federal action and the actions at the state level have very little to do with one another. Federal is about invasive species. The states are jerk knee reaction to Zanesville Ohio incident, and fall into the category of Dangerous Animal Legislation; two completely different things. USARK is NOT losing sight of the need to protect the states of OH, IN, VA and SC. We will NOT be spending resources necessary for state level fights on a federal lawsuit to overturn the 4 species listed on the Lacey Act. If USARK decides to pursue a federal lawsuit we will raise the money outside of (and above and beyond) the money needed for operating and preforming the mission we have so successfully fulfilled for 4 years at the state level. This is NOT a vast state federal conspiracy to eliminate the Herp Industry. Some events play off of and encourage some actions... and other actions are completely unrelated.
