Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I saw your post about the recent craziness in Zanesville, Ohio, where law enforcement had to shoot and kill nearly 30 lions, bears, tigers, cheetahs and wolves that escaped from a wild animal preserve. I'm in Zanesville and I'd like to bring home one of those lion carcasses and maybe have it stuffed. Is this a "finder's keepers" situation?

Answer: No, those dead lions still belong to someone other than you. If you try to take one home, you can expect to be charged with a misdemeanor count of theft. (FOX News, Five Arrested for Trying to Steal Lion Carcass in Ohio)

2) Question: Thanks for answering my recent question about the guy who showed up at my front door with a black doctor's bag offering "free breast exams." Now there is a van driving around my neighborhood offering free "mobile mammography." Is this also a scam?

Answer: No, this one looks legit. (Orlando SentinelMobile mammography unit will help uninsured women in cancer fight)

3) Question: I have been following your series of posts about Things You Can't Do on a Plane. What about viewing pornography -- can you do that on a plane? 

Answer: Not quite yet, but soon you may be able to do so on Ryanair airline. (Daily MailTurning Ryanair blue: Boss of budget airline plans to screen in-flight pornography)
