These companies should be well aware of the laws with regard to what they sell. I doubt if they did not know. They probably expected to make a huge commission. Revoke their licence and close them down. How many other illegal sales have they gotten away with? Not good enough. Strike hard and fast against people who should know better and report these items if they arise. If people who are knowledgeable and able to prevent black market sales, don't there is NO way to save any endangetred specie. Hit them hard. TODAY.
