Must be a great relief for anyone who ate there in the last YEAR AND A HALF. Did they think they were putting together a RICO case?

A gross misdemeanor, for sure.

The fish and game was probably consumed, but I suspect the investigation was trying to find out where the gallbladders were going; it's a serious poaching problem with big profits.

It also annoys the bears.

Yogi is grateful.

And still a bit tender.

Well, we know generically where the bear parts are going: Traditional Chinese Medicine (aka TCM). I'm generally not in favor of banning things, but this particular door is one we ought to slam, hard.
