The Fish and Wildlife officer may be cute! White teeth and fresh breath make all the difference in the world. Yes I know initially the summons and subsequent arrest for the illegal capture and possession of native species in a protected area without a permit can seem like little more than excessive fines and possible incarceration, but it may be the start of a beautiful relationship. You already know how hard it is to find someone who shares your interest in native species. You may have to “save it for the judge”, but you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
