Default Alaskan Christmas trees showing up with live ornaments

Kill that tree frog Officials in Anchorage Alaska are asking Christmas tree purchasers to kill Pacific Chorus Frogs about one or two inches long that have hitchhiked to Alaska hiding in Christmas trees from Washington State. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is worried that these cute frogs will infest Alaska and believe that the frogs may carry "ugly viruses and funguses" like Chytrid Fungus.

Ok. Are you serious. If they think they need to kill the frogs then they should. Its probably not native to start with. They could have a disease or take over some other native frogs niche. They should just stop shipping the trees to start with.
