Regular readers know I was in Hawaii last week. I took a quick detour on the way home to visit my sister in Dillon, Montana, a beautiful five hour drive from Salt Lake City. It so happens she is a biologist, and an expert in invasive species. Unfortunately, we did not discuss this story, which suggests a potentially yummy solution to the problem.
Perhaps we could re-legalize the slaughter of horses?
While not popular here, Europeans have long consumed them.
Oh wait. Wild horses on public lands are a desirable invasive species. We choose not to be outraged, worried or indignant about wild equine proliferation.
Some invasive species are more equal than others.
