US MAil Service apparently refuses Live animals of all kinds now
I sent a box of killies from Irwin, Pa (near Pittsburgh) to New Jersey on Saturday. NO labels other than "keep warm" and/or "Keep at room Temperature". They got there at the same time the adressee in New Jersey got his OWN fish back. PO had his for 2 days and returned them to him stating NO LIVE DELIVERYS. His were labeled LIVE TROPICAL FISH though and the PO counter locally took them from him to mail with glee(as did mine). Somewhere in the delivery chain they bounced! He had shipped three boxes via Express MAIL( I do not know the addresses he sent them to though), mine was mailed to him via PRIORITY MAIL.
If the delivery system inspects the contents and finds live anything, apparently they are being returned to the sender.
I don't know what the hobby will do if this is real and not a mixup. Seems maybe tied to FEDEX but I am not sure.
