Canadian seagull legalities

    A question for my fellow Canadians. A dream sounds like it is about to come true next weekend....my buddy's uncle who farms turf and runs a composting operation has recieved a kill permit to control the seagulls that essentially molest his business all day everyday. My question is, can I mount these birds legally? Given that they are protected in all other circumstances will I need a special permit to possess and mount them? I would imagine a copy of the kill permit would be a given.....also what would I need to do to sell them to other taxi's or as completed mounts?...they may be a hot item given the inability to harvest by hunting. Boy this is gonna be fun!

    I might as well be the one to bust your bubble of fun, but it is unlawful to sell migratory birds in North America, and Canada is included!

    Ok bubble burst! Lol....what about mounting them for myself or gifting, do I need some sort of permit/paperwork?

    Why not as the folks who actually enforce the laws instead of strangers on the computer ?
