Re: US MAil Service apparently refuses Live animals of all kinds now
I had a similar experience last week on a shipment of
fish from the Philadelphia area to northern NJ. I
talked to the local post master. He agreed with me
that since the shipment was going by ground
transportation, any prohibition about air transport of
live shipment did not apply. It is clear however,
that the USPO is gearing up to control live shipment
of organisms to the detriment of those organisms
arriving in a viable condition.
