Lions and Tigers and Hogweed, oh my!

WBZ Radio is reporting today that Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) has been found at the Franklin Park Zoo in Boston, MA. The plants, which have been removed, were originally mistaken for a smaller, less dangerous relative, Cow parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris). The state Department of Food and Agriculture has received over 100 reports of sighting of Giant hogweed since the alert went out last week.
