PGC will not release basic documents under RTKL
Middleburg, PA: February 5, 2015: When you begin your investigation after charging someone, much less not even referencing the applicable State Code, you are bound to get something wrong! That's just what the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC), Chief of Special Permits, Chad Eyler did when he rushed into pushing the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) to charge Falconer and Raptor Propagator (breeder), Mike Dupuy.
Both Falconry and the breeding of Raptors is a complicated area when it comes to the law. Dupuy pays $200 a year for Federal and State Permits specifically to breed raptors. Back in 2012 when the Federal regulations were revised Dupuy found out he could take wild stock for his propagation efforts. He confirmed this by calling his FWS Regional Office. FWS sent him an email confirming it was allowed.
