Pike Population in Lake Davis

Laila McClay, from member station KQED, reports on the problem of recurring pike in Lake Davis in northern California. Several years ago, the species appeared in the lake and began eating the native species. The Fish and Game people decided to poison the pike, which took care of the problem for a while, but now the fish are back. Officials and townspeople are trying to figure out how they returned, and how to get rid of them again.
