Stop the madness!

Three months ago US Fish and Wildlife came and seized injured, blind and unflighted birds from my house without any warning. I have rescued ravens and crows for 8 years, giving them medical care and sanctuary at a great financial and personal cost to me because these birds, which are not endangered, are protected under the Migratory Bird Act. I was in the process of being permitted Federally. They euthanized the birds which couldn't be returned to the wild, even though my 20 ft. by 12 ft.  outdoor aviary is equipped for handicapped birds. Corvids are not allowed to be kept by private parties. I'm not a hoarder, I let these birds have life, and the ones that were rehabilitated were set free.


I have one non-indigenous raven, Edgar, which the Federal Government said I could keep.  He is an African Pied Crow/Brown necked raven hybrid. This morning, a California State Fish and Game warden came to my door to take my raven saying that I don't have a state permit and they want to take him and euthanize him. 

All I'm asking is for Fish and Game to give me the permit needed to keep my raven. Please write them with my request for a permit. Thank you.
