Yep, got way off topic, but it was interesting. Danno, thanks for shedding some light on keeping wildlife in Michigan. I learned something.
Now to play devil’s advocate and tie this back into bees: If the bees aren’t domesticated aren’t they also wildlife? Aren’t the swarms I catch from trees wildlife? If some city council was to really parse the law up (which they love to do), they might get away with classifying bees as “wildlife” and make it darn near impossible to keep bees.
This is one of those things where the State Government (now completely in Republican control) should step in and lay down the law, or write a new one, to prevent the local City Councils from playing God. Come on Republicans, show me you can do the right thing! :)
