Around the World in 7 Days - North America

In an admitted publicity stunt, government officials in the Western U.S. are attempting to have the northern snakehead (Channa argus) declared as an endangered species. According to this story at Hometown Annapolis, the group is applying to get an invasive fish listed as endangered in order to draw attention to their claim that the Endangered Species Act infringes on the rights of private property owners. Hope the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service doesn't have to waste too much money and time on this one.
