I’m sure many of you have mentioned the absurdity of the laws of Australia: 10 years in prison for the illegal importation of animals too. But no, it’s not unreasonable. Australia’s unique fauna, so in the country and there are such strict rules. Animals are required to go through a long quarantine and all the things you used to care for them, after quarantine, are destroyed.
