      In spite of a "plea from Maine's top
      turtle trapper," the state has banned the commercial harvest of
      snapping turtles" says the Maine Environmental News 7/26. The ban was
      unanimously approved given concerns "about the viability of the
      population" in the state and public support that was "overwhelming .
      stirring an outpouring from across the U.S. and even to England." As
      more states pass bans on commercial harvests buyers and trappers are
      moving to open states to meet a "bid demand in Asia" for snappers.
