Invasive Species and Feral Animal Populations are becoming more prevalent in our state, so I thought why not start a discussion on the subject here on the forum. Maybe a list can be generated with information on locations where the various species were sighted.
I heard that a white crane was sighted just across the river (Kanektok) from our community last summer. Folks here thought that it may have been a Whooping Crane or other species from Asia or Siberia like the Red Crowned Crane, Siberian Crane or White Naped Crane. Additionally a few hunters said they spotted a Dall Sheep a few years ago, up in the Ahklun Mountains. Dall Sheep are not usually found in our area. And lastly a Green Sturgeon was caught by a fisherman near the mouth of the Kuskokwim River a few seasons ago. All unusual and unique sightings.
