Invasive Species Alert: ZOMBIES! | Missouri Department of Conservation

Just in time for Hunting Season, Missouri releases its guide to outdoor safety during a zombie apocalypse.

“Welcome to this special Fresh Afield blog post.

Be warned of our state’s newest invasive species threat–ZOMBIES!

While zombie management is largely left to the police, military and health agencies, conservation plays a role in protecting Missouri’s fish, forest and wildlife resources–and Missourians–from this invasive species.

Hunters, campers and others in the outdoors and on conservation areas should know there is always the chance they may encounter a zombie while out in the field. Good preparation helps you know what to do if you encounter this newest invasive species in Missouri.

The zombie invasion is like the feral hog problem in parts of Missouri, and its management is similar. We do not encourage organized zombie hunts since that may encourage the intentional release of zombie swarms. It can also disrupt wildlife and hunting opportunities for the more than 500,000 living Missourians who enjoy hunting.
Zombie Identification

Some indications that you have a zombie in view:

* It has a gray-green dull skin tone.
* It is wearing inappropriate clothing for the
season or terrain (no coat or shoes, for
instance).
* It has open wounds, other injuries and/or
missing or damaged limbs but no sign of
bleeding.
* It does not respond to verbal stimulus or
exhibit any interest in its immediate
surroundings.
* It is trying to eat you.”
