Horse Feathers

This reminds me of when a woman was fined for collecting eagle feathers from the ground. People wanted to strengthen the level of protection for eagles. Because some eagles are killed in order to use their feathers, a law was passed to prevent people from selling eagle feathers. Nevermind how you actually got them. Nevermind that the feathers may have been acquired long before the law was passed. A great case is documented here.
