EDITORIAL: Plight of the cutthroat

Innovative methods applauded in fight against lake trout

Deep in the waters of Yellowstone Lake lurk thousands of trout that threaten the fragile ecosystem of America’s beloved first national park.

Non-native lake trout prey on cutthroat trout native to Yellowstone Lake, but it’s not simply a case of big fish versus little fish — much more is at stake.

In recent days, at least two plans to boost our economy and create jobs have been proposed to the American people.
