A Look Inside Badges, Bears, and Eagles: Chapter 23, “Bears and Bad Guys”

Jessup walked over to a second refrigerator and pulled out another plastic bag, containing four more gall bladders. The four gall bladders in this bag were two or three times larger than those in the first bag. [Agent] Hoang did not want to appear anxious, so he bartered with Jessup for a few minutes and said he wasn’t prepared to buy all of them at that time. “I don’t like keepin’ ’em here at the house and neither does the other guy,” said Jessup. Henry Jessup was obviously well aware that possession of more than one bear gall bladder legally meant they were for sale, and the sale or possession for sale of bear parts was a felony.
