Canada Sending Angry Crabs To Attack the United States

September 20, 2018

Angry green crabs from Nova Scotia migrating to coastal Maine waters are destroying soft shell clams and eel grass, researchers say.

The crabs originated in northern Europe and are more aggressive than the type of green crabs that have previously inhabited New England waters. Those come from southern Europe originally.

One researcher describes getting attacked by one. He also saw a bunch of them destroy eel grass while looking for marine organisms to eat, according to FoxNews.com.
