This rule was finalized in October of last year and has apparently just taken effect. In a nutshell, CT DEEP banned these animals and did not allow a permit system because of a future and perceived lack of enforcement and personnel resources. In other words, it's easier to just ban the animals than to regulate them. The NEHS position paper (which I authored) was oft quoted here and at times, statements were taken out of context to suit the desires of CT DEEP.

Hopefully the enclosed hyperlink works. It contains a discussion of the rule and a summary of public comments.
