    were/was

    Dear Teachers,

    Why use "was imported" not " were imported" in the sentence below?

    "They were hunting for ebony and rosewood which the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) alleges was imported from India in violation of the Lacey Act, a 1900 law originally designed to protect fauna from poachers."

    Please help me understand. Thank you.

    I would say that it's an error.
