The past week in invasive species posts, from elsewhere in the blogosphere:
- Words & Pictures has an interesting post about American skunks discovered in the wild in the UK. I would think they'd be pretty low on the pet totem pole, but apparently not.
- Other bloggers had some fun with this ISW post about praying as a control method for invasive species. At bogalusa, you can read a great little poem. Drew at Drew's Brave New World suggests a new powerful acronym: WWKD (What Would Kudzu Do?). Someone put that on a bumper sticker, stat! :-)
- Fisher at the Luxury Gardens blog is a garden designer, but the questions he gets most frequently are about how to get rid of invasive plants.
- That Fish Blog has a post about lionfish, which they sell at That Fish Place but don't want you to ever release into the wild.
I recall my mother saying that when she was a child (before World War II), surgically descented skunks were popular as pets here in California. It's been illegal for along time, apparently because there isn't a rabies vaccine for skunks and many wild skunks carry rabies.
