Is it illegal to own a wolf pelt in Virginia?

I'm planning on wearing a wolf pelt to emulate a Germanic berserker for SCA battles. First I need to know if it's legal to own one.

good q .. I would say that since wolves are protected species you may run into problems legally but I doubt anyone in the SCA is going to question it as the SCA officially holds no opinion on the subject of using the furs of protected species. Keep it with your gear till you get to the site and you'll likely be fine. Some states where wolves have been reintroduced are allowing limited hunts as this time so there is no way to prove you did not obtain it legally or that it wasn't a pelt that was obtained before wolves had protective status. I wouldn't wear it around town but since SCA sites tend to be self governing and most the ppl that show are SCA people you likely won't run into any problems.
