Does anyone know whether it is legal to buy, sell, or own animals that were collected from the state of Washington? I read somewhere that it is illegal to own native animals in Washington, CB or WC, but is it illegal to own them elsewhere in the US? (Buy them from WA)? I couldn't find anything about it in the WA state game and fish Department website, so I hope someone here knows something.
Thanks in advance

Yes, it is illegal to buy them from WA. If they are from WA but for sale in another state then they were exported illegally and probably in violation of the Lacey Act too.
