    kill them.

    When it incentivises killing species it's busted. Pennsylvania might have it's own state laws but federal designation trumps it.

      just in case this bill passes. I'm not sure where the feds stand on saving the bats, though, since that is a multi-state problem. A worrisome one, given the importance of bats in agriculture and health issues.

        the states. I just updated with a bill from Rand Paul introduced in the senate which will never pass,,,,, this session. But with a changed filibuster rule next session and a R majority it's certainly a possibility. Of course they'd have to give quite a bit for Obama's signature, but still there are potentially very uncomfortable changes possible.

        My epic 6 year battle to get the bats out of my attic has finally succeeded. Maybe they headed your way.
