Ah, another one of those "gray" areas.  Please share any pertinent
responses you receive on this Jay.  I've had a lot of mixed and
conflicting answers from both Federal, State and Local regulatory
agencies.  It "may" come down to whether they're "human-use"
radioisotopes or not, but I'd like to see chapter and verse quoted one
way or another.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Transportation of Radioactive Animals

Are there any rules and regulations about transportation of radioactive
animals (mainly from imaging studies) on public roads.  We typically do
this between buildings without going on the public roads.  A new
facility is being built which may required the transport of radioactive
animals on public roads a short distance of a mile or so.
