The Crime of the Wild – Know Your Endangered Species

vintage-1830208_1920Although our schools do not equip us to distinguish between the almost 1500 different bugs, lizards, birds, rodents, fish, etc. that the government labels “endangered”, it is now being argued that to take or kill even one of these creatures should be criminal regardless of how innocent or inadvertent the act.  Even an endangered splat on your car’s windshield might render you a criminal and send you to jail.

The Overlawyered story itself has a good illustration of just how difficult distinguishing an endangered species from related species can be even if you are consciously trying to tell the difference.
