Australian vs Red Tape

The president of the Southern Tasmania Reptile Club bred several native lizards with the intent of giving the offspring away to children, but government departments won't allow him to do so, despite previous assurances that it would be OK. He wanted to do this to keep children from collecting them in the wild, which is legal with a permit. But, once again, short-sightedness in governmental "wildlife conservation" agencies gets in the way. (News source.)
