During the summer of 2012 we had a bit of a kerfuffle with a rogue snakehead fish that had been introduced into our pond.  The fish has a very bad reputation for aggressively taking over habitat.  Eventually the authorities actually had to drain the pond so our sailings were interrupted for a while.  Here is some more info.

 

 

The CTV had an interesting spin on the situation. The video is missing though.
