    They're taking over!...But seriously in the UK we've got problems with 'Alien' signal crayfish from the US,outcompeting the natives,damaging riverbanks and spreading 'crayfish plague'.Sadly another case of man's importation going wrong.

    The human race has no idea at all, lessons are never learnt. If there is a profit to be made from breeding anything it will be done, no matter what the effect is on biodiversity.
    Also ignorance from so called do gooders who release captive animals into the wild causing havoc with native wildlife.
    Look what Mink have done!!!!
    Agree totally with J @Houzi comments. 'Well said '.
