DNR fears zebra mussels hitchhiking on boat lifts
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Biologists at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources are concerned zebra mussels may be hitchhiking on boat lifts.
The DNR says a second case recently was discovered on the northeast corner of Lake Irene in Douglas County. A localized population of zebra mussels was found on a lift last weekend.
A similar case was discovered at Rose Lake in Otter Tail County in late September.
