Where the heck are all these exotic species coming from. They certainly aren't native to Minnesota.

Quit bringing in crap from other states and countries.

Um, Earth to Tammy. That's what an exotic species is--something not native to Minnesota.

I'm all for shipping in the Great Lakes, but they have to discard their bildges before entering the freshwater or at the confluence. On another note, all of the other invaiders that are present, stop putting your snakes, fish and or any other creature you brought from another country in to our environment.
