There has been quite a discussion in California about these guys (they 
may be establishing feral populations)--but Missouri?  Don't think he's 
going to like winter here!

I can't speak as to documentation, but would think it would be of 
interest as a first record of this escapee in the state.

I hear we are losing you to Texas.  Very much our loss and Texas's 
gain.  Please let us know where and what you are doing.
