I just became aware of a listing ended by ebay, for a pair of alligator (or crocodile, I'm not sure) shoes. Ebay says the listing could possibly be in violation of California PENAL CODE SECTION 639-653.1 which reads in part: 653o. (a) It is unlawful to import into this state for commercial purposes, to possess with intent to sell, or to sell within the state, the dead body, or any part or product thereof, of any alligator, crocodile, polar bear, leopard, ocelot, tiger, cheetah, jaguar, sable antelope, wolf ( Canis lupus), zebra, whale, cobra, python, sea turtle, colobus monkey, kangaroo, vicuna, sea otter, free-roaming feral horse, dolphin or porpoise (Delphinidae), Spanish lynx, or elephant. Link to the whole code here: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/di...file=639-653.1 Is this some sort of joke?? Has enyone ever heard of it being illegal to sell alligator or crocodile shoes in California?
