INFESTATIONS: A Third Potomac Snakehead Found

The Washington Post reports this morning that a third snakehead has been found in the Potomac, sparking fears that the fish may become permanently entrenched in the watershed.

From the Post's Peter Whoriskey:
An angler competing in a bass fishing competition on Saturday pulled a 13-inch northern snakehead out of the Potomac River, marking the third time in nine days that the exotic species has been captured in or near the waterway and heightening fears that the Asian predators could become permanently established.

Screw the cicadas, they're ready to die and go away. The snakeheads could be here to stay.
