The Department of Justice appeals

I can personally attest to the arrival of at least one spotted lanternfly in Allegheny County, specifically at the Sonoco station at 310 Cedar Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Northside, where I stopped for gas.

There, as I was dumping some trash in the bin, was a creature such as I had seen numerous times in photographs. This time, however, it was in real life.

I did what I was supposed to do, which was not what some would consider the vegan thing. I did not preserve the evidence.
