Transporting mussels carries consequences
Be careful about what you're transporting into a lake.
If it turns out to be zebra mussels, you could face legal charges.
That's what happened to a 54-year-old Fargo man last week and a 30-year-old Eagle Bend man in November.
The men were charged in separate cases under a new law that prohibits people from moving a piece of lake equipment that has aquatic invasive species such as zebra mussels attached to it.
