Something to think about

WildEarth Guardians and the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance think that you should be prosecuted under the Endangered Species Act even if you had no idea that what you were doing would cause damage to a protected species or that the species was even endangered.  Walter Olson, over at Overlawyered wonders if stepping on a protected beatle while you were jogging could result in you going to jail.

Some might say that the government would be reasonable and not overreach, but those people are clearly not paying much attention. 

Worth thinking about.
