Release the Houndstongue!

The Grand Forks Herald is reporting that houndstongue (Cynoglossum officinale) has recently been identified in four counties in North Dakota, alarming agricultural officials. While the European weed has been found in that state before, it has never been seen in such great numbers. Houndstongue is especially undesirable on farmland, since it is not palatable to livestock, and is likely to be poisonous to them if they do eat it.
