Pigeon Eggs from Cuba Lacey Act Violation
Here is a link to a Department of Justice press release noting the guilty plea of two Miami men charged with violations of the Lacey Act. Specifically, they smuggled pigeon eggs into the US from Cuba. Note that this raises all kinds of other Cuba-embargo-related questions, but that is not the substance of the charge. One of the defendants runs (or maybe now it is correct to say "ran") a pet store specializing in racing and homing pigeons.
