Walrus Invasion



The US Geological Survey has recorded some 20 thousand walruses ashore on the coast of Alaska. Most of them should be on ice floes drifting over the continental shelf, where they can dive for clams and sea worms. The trouble is, global warming has melted a lot of the ice. This is not a good sign for the walruses or the rest of us.

  1. We better start watching out for rogue walruses. You know, the highly predatory ones.

  2. Apparently they are not averse to killing a human here and there--but only hunters and other such trouble-makers. . . so far.

  3. It's only a matter of time, I guess...
