What kind of patchouli Senate is there in Washington and coming for the rest of us?  Well, this kind:  Let’s say the you and your children are hiking in beautiful Olympic National Park.  Oh, look!  Moose antlers!  If you or your child – who didn’t shoot the moose, I hasten to add, you simply found the molted antlers lying on the trail – well, if you pick up the antlers – again, not leave the park with them, but simply Pick. Them.  Up. Well, that’s a five thousand dollar fine and up to six months in jail according to Federal law, 36 CFR 2.1 subchapter (a)(1)(i).

To wit:

§ 2.1 Preservation of natural, cultural and archeological resources.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, the following is prohibited:
(1) Possessing, destroying, injuring, defacing, removing, digging, or disturbing from its natural state:
(i) Living or dead wildlife or fish, or the parts or products thereof, such as antlers or nests.

You can bet someone has been prosecuted under this law.  But at least it’s not a felony!

Watch the whole thing.
