NYC and NJ residents are plauged with an abundance of Canada Geese. Now Vermonters have a simple solution shoot them and serve them with shallots and white wine or whatever alcohol is handy. Imagine my surprise when I visited Jams blog Plant Porn and Pussycats and saw the pox of NYC is in the UK. Apparently they are in Sweden, Poland and Finland as well.
Alien or invasive species is a serious problem and they often displace local wildlife. I wasn't surprised to see Red Eared Sliders in the UK. The turtle has also invaded NYC and Hawaii. Part of the problem is irresponsible pet owners dump their pets in he wild and sometimes they get established. There are many reports of Burmese Pythons in the Everglades. Burmese Pythons are 16 feet long and cad consume a deer.
In the Chesapeak there was a scare caused by locals catching a snakehead fish native to China and the aquarium trade. These fsh are very sturdy and can survive extreemes. They also are tasty with granny smith apples if you can find the right resturant.
