As long as people take their boat trailers to other lakes, this will happen. I find it funny that the article includes a comment about having four billboards reminding people about invasive species . . . if that was their only plan for prevention, that is sad.

FYI, read the following report on page 2, page 4 of the document.

http://www.mass.gov/dcr/watersupply/lakepond/...

Zebras are transported by waterfowl, ducks and geese.

All efforts limiting boat trailer movement are meaningless, including the 4 billboards!

Also note the Zebra is already in Canada but not west of Minnesota, however the ducks and geese WILL get them there.

There is NO prevention and thanks to environmental laws the Zebra got here and now we have a new friend to deal with.

Don't ya just love environmentalists??

BHO just took another step to invigorate Russia and stomp on our European allies.

BHO is forgeing ahead in Afghanistan with NO EXIT STRATAGEY or plan for success. Oh we need more troops. Oh we need NATO support and they are leaving.

BHO is getting the USA into a Quagmire in Afghanistan and pulling us out of Iraq, soon to be another Quagmire

BHO facilitated Cash for Clunkers, burned up 3 times the budget. Destroyed 700,000 operable cars that could have been used by the poor for needed transportation. Spent $3 BILLION to save $300 MILLION. ONLY government can loose so much and call it a success!

BHO sees a uptick in the economy because of spending $3 BILLION on the Clunker program and declares the recession is over!!

Ya the recession is over soon to be replaced by a depression!!

The Zebra is spread by waterfowl as stated in the following report:

Take a read, the primary means of the spread of Zebras is attachment to waterfowl. The boat accesses could be closed and the Zebra would continue to spread, thanks to ducks, geese, loons, herrons, gulls, any and all waterfowl.

Interesting if you view the sperad of Zebra map the manifestations follow the Mississippi flyway.

http://www.mass.gov/dcr/watersupply/lakepond/ ...

P.S. I don't understand WHY the DNR isn't educating Minnesota residents that Waterfowl spread the Zebra, political reasons???

Maybe the DNR is controlled by the rich and would love to eliminate the movement of the public to different lakes via public access.

The rich property owners would love to see public accesses closed. You know the lakes are theirs.....
