When I heard the silly press

When I heard the silly press release about the Asian longhorn, I thought it will be open season on all the native longhorns now. How many people, finding a black and white beetle with long antennae, will bother to check if it really is the alien before they kill it? Not many, I suspect. And they told people to look out for trees with big holes in, so a lot of lesser stag colonies will be going on the bonfire.
