People, not deer threaten bog – report

By JONATHAN SHER, THE LONDON FREE PRESS

People drained the bog, flooded it, stripped its peat, cut its black spruce for Christmas trees, surrounded it with development and gravel pits and planted an invasive plant that’s likely its biggest threat, buckthorn.
