It's a blanket law in California. Species have to be excluded to be legal, rather than included to be illegal. This was pushed through in the 1920's by big money chicken ranchers. Getting the appropriate department to reevaluate species is nearly impossible; note the decades long fight to legalize pet ferrets - which cannot survive in the wild.
