caught smuggling zebras!

Post by bengranger80 »

Just spoke to someone who I have bought zebs from in the past and he said that there will be no more wild caughts on sale in the coming months/years as he said he has heard that the main group behind the wild caught 'smuggling ring' have been caught and are now in prison.
He said to look on the ibama website for details, but after searching I can't find any evidence of this being true.

Has anyone else heard this of is it just rumours?

Good news for the zebs & other fish in the wild, plenty of F1s around for everybody.
Hope the prisons are not as soft as the UK, giving them sky tv & playstations hope they get real punishment. :twisted:
