Dan,
here is where I ran into the problem. Look below, at this section of the 1981 Ammendment. What occurred was I received a timber rattlesnake from someone else who shipped it into NY without a permit from NYS DEC. Because the Lacey Act states(3372, 2(A)) you cannot ship an animal that violates a state law or reg., the fellow who shipped it in violated the act. Basically they violated a NY State Law, which in turn violated the act. My original question was simply where does it state that US Postal Service was the only method of transport that violates the act, I think, in terms of the Act, it's any means of transport.
