Now how did Chinese crabs manage to get into the Cumbrian wildlife and nature areas...what a pity someone introduced them.

oh noz! whos gunna catch them and send them all back home?
or suggest we adopt them as pets?
or render them sterile and wait for all of them to die?

or should we just eat the MOFOs or feed them to sea otters?
