New, 2 comments

According to the New York Times, federal prosecutors have filed a criminal complaint against The Hump for "the illegal sale of a marine mammal product," which could result in one year of federal prison and a max fine of $100,000 for an individual and $200,000 for an organization. United States attorney, André Birotte Jr. says, "Someone should not be able to walk into a restaurant and order a plate of an endangered species.” True that.
