[Killietalk] killies held hostage part 2
Just as information to those of you that are sending fish internationally.
I have spend hours on the phone over the last 2 days trying to get my fish
released by Fish and Wildlife.
Thanks Tony and others for your help.
The readers digest version is as follows.
In order for me to get my fish back, I need to pay the $50 for the import
permit and a fine of $150. for each species of fish that I was bringing into
the country - 2 species plus freight. That comes to $350.00 plus freight.
Sounds like extortion to me!
They are sending me a letter that gives me the option to pay the fines or to
relinquish the fish. All I know is that I can't afford those fines.
I just hope that they find a good home for the fish. What a waste of life.
I would have expected something like this from some 3rd world country where
extortion is the name of the game, not from our own government. Do they
need the money that bad. This is a fine example of a goverment gone bad.
