Joan Quarles writes:

Another patently unhealthy, unhelpful idea by the ag people. Really,if they had anything to think with, I'd make an intemperate suggestion.

Wendy Ebersberger writes:

If passed, what enforcement procedures will ensure that the talons and feathers of endangered raptors, or products made therefrom, are not hidden in shipments of those from turkeys? How would a flood of products made with turkey talons and feathers affect the ability of law enforcement to police the black market in sales of look-alike products?
