They are Not Releasing Kangaroos in Wyoming

April Fools Day was two days ago, but I am still seeing a lot of the people I follow on social media sharing an article about kangaroos coming to Wyoming. 

Sorry, it was indeed a prank... 

The gag was made more believable by the Wyoming Migration Initiative’s official Facebook page. The post appearing on the group’s official page “confirmed” that the reports were true.

Since they have posted this: 

Yesterday the folks over at developed and ran an APRIL FOOLS’ joke about kangaroos being introduced into Wyoming. And we played along. Kangaroos were NOT introduced into Wyoming yesterday, nor should they ever be. Many of you were shocked to hear of this development and warned of the ecological consequences of adding an exotic mammal (especially a prolific one) to Wyoming’s native fauna. We appreciate your outrage. Indeed, there is a well documented record of the detrimental effects that the introduction of species like Norwegian rats, the brown tree snake, European starlings, and wild pigs (just to name a few) have had on native ecosystems.

You can stop sharing this article now...
