Re: $710 to get my wolf out of canada
I also learned the hard way, but here is what I know, other animals may require it as well.
USFWS Form 3-177 allows for the transport of many trophy animals (bear, wolf, sheep, etc)
CITES is required for protected species such as Wolf, Grizzly, ETC. Black bears do not require CITES forms.
The forms have to be filled out with codes port of call, transportation codes and scientific names that the average person does not know, I was able to go to a local library and use their computers to find help tools online to make it fairly simplet to fill out and print the forms.
I was in an RV and arrived at the US entry point to find what I presume was a newer agent. She was very gruff and very nosy as well, she told her supervisor that my "dead bear" needed inspected, he handed her latex gloves and said go ahead, that was when she suddenly became much nicer and let me proceed thru without any hesitation. The Canadian customs agents were more interested in the fire arms and could care less about the bear.
I hope this helps someone on one of their future hunts.
