Congressional Hearing On USFWS Enforcement Activities
by Laurella Desborough
Over the years, there have been complaints reported about the harsh handling of the public by agents from the Enforcement Division of US Fish and Wildlife Services. Concerns have been raised among legislators. As a result, a special hearing will occur, regarding the alleged overzealous actions of some agents, especially in regard to the manner in which they have handled animal owners and dealers. If you or someone you know has been given reason to question the actions of USFWS Enforcement in this regard, please contact Judy Franklin by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on this matter.
