USFWS taking it's sweet time w/ my permit application.

I applied for a CITES import permit last October. I still have no answer a year later. And the USFWS wonders why people smuggle or ship w/o the proper permits? I have given up on this particular permit, but I am about to apply for another. I'm interested in some boas from Canada, and in two days, the other party has all relevant paperwork. I told him don't expect anything until next spring (if then). A classic example of how red tape obscures the real benefit of working w/ endangered species. Most who work for the service are biologists. It would seem to me that they would clearly see what legislation and regulations do not work for a species survival/protection. Just thought I would vent a little. I look forward to some good responses, and welcome any comments, either here in the forum, or to my email. Thanks.

Jay
