If the captive-bred animals are "the offspring thereof" ('thereof' = 'from that cause or origin', i.e. 'from those original animals', 'from that wildlife') smuggled animals, then those offspring are not legal.

From Lacey, inserting 'the offspring thereof' clause from the listed definition of 'wildlife' in for clarity:

It is unlawful for any person -
(1) to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire, or purchase any fish or wildlife or offspring from that wildlife or plant taken, possessed, transported, or sold in violation of any law, treaty, or regulation of the United States or in violation of any Indian tribal law;
(2) to import, export, transport, sell, receive, acquire, or purchase in interstate or foreign commerce -
(A) any fish or wildlife or offspring from that wildlife taken, possessed, transported, or sold in violation of any law or regulation of any State or in violation of any foreign law;

I just don't think you're reading the 'offspring' clause the way it -- judging from the rest of the text -- is intended.
