    08.pdf (scroll to G 137.1

    WIll make it ILLEGAL to own or sell Nanday Conures in
    Pennsylvania! Please write and tell them NO WAY!

    It reads:
    G. Amend 58 Pa. Code, §137.1.
    Commentary: Currently, §137.1 requires a person importing
    lawfully acquired wildlife,
    or parts thereof, for menagerie, educational or scientific
    purposes to
    obtain an importation permit, but does not require an
    importation permit
    for exotic wildlife dealer or exotic wildlife possession
    permit holders. In
    an effort to create consistency in the regulations and
    increase the
    Commission’s capabilities to address wildlife
    epidemiological concerns,
    the Commission is proposing to amend §137.1 (relating to
    importation,
    sale and release of certain wildlife) to specifically
    require propagation,
    exotic wildlife dealer and exotic wildlife possession
    permit holders to
    acquire an importation permit prior to importing any
    wildlife into this
    Commonwealth. The Commission is also proposing to amend
    §137.1 to
    prohibit the importation, possession, sale and release of
    all non-human
    primates and the Conure-Nanday, sometimes referred to as
    the Blackhooded
    Parakeet, in response to human health/safety and wildlife
    habitat
    health purposes.
