    I haven't. Always heard they were super aggressive though. I think I remember Pennsylvania or Virginia poisoning whole water systems trying to get rid of them.

      Never have and hope I don’t ever get one unless I drive to it.

          Since the early 2000's they've been known to be aggressive, with the giant snakehead willing to attack people.

          Regarding poisoning: Sorry had the states mixed up. It was Maryland and New York that poisoned ponds or lakes in a connected system. You can check that against the wiki article and news searches. I think some states may have tried draining areas before they realized how well their primitive lungs worked

            You are right about Maryland. They are in the Potomac River drainage around the eastern Maryland and Eastern Virginia areas. The headwaters of the Potomac is in West Virginia, I hope they don't make it up this far in the drainage.

                Made it threw a couple dams cause of them not being monitored. This virus helped since the people where not allowed to go to work so they are on the move. Now they entered my state hope they dont get out of control.
