I think more invasive species come from idiots that get exotic pets and then set them lose.

This has been going on for years, gee they're catching it now?!?!? Also, people are also a great contributor to contaminating our eco-system by bringing in creatures from other countries as pets and then setting them loose in the environment, where they DO NOT belong. Then these creatures start eating away and surviving and making it their home, while destroying it. I've read alot about it happening in Florida. Who realizes that when they let something loose where it doesn't belong. They just don't think about the consequences. Where are we headed?
