Daily carp bomb: The scales of justice

In January, the Supreme Court denied Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox’s request to halt the incoming Asian carp by closing the shipping locks between the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes.

That decision has come back to haunt them, according to today’s carp-flavored photobomb from the Conservation and Restoration Network.

Carp hit the Supreme Court

Based on their facial expressions, most of the justices seem happy to face their carp judgment. Except the stoic Justice Samuel Alito (standing, top left), who’s only missing a blindfold and cigarette.

Where else will the carp sneak now that they’ve breached the electric barrier? You can help us prepare by getting in on the carp bomb action.

    Hi Candace,

    Sorry about the clobber. Echo is also an MSU research tool and it looks like you were hit with a randomized invitation. Readers can opt out of research studies at the bottom of the About page: http://greatlakesecho.org/about/

    How about letting me read the story before you clobber me between the eyes with requests for comments?
