Postcard: Carp are thriving, unpopular in Wyoming waterways; can be composted (August 31, 2012)

“Wyoming fisheries no longer stock state waterways with carp, but the species is still alive and well throughout the state. Wyoming Public Radio’s Rebecca Martinez filed this end-of-summer postcard about her first experience with the common carp… and with bow-fishing.”
