What gets 15 feet tall, invades quickly, is hard to kill, and cause the kind of suffering that makes poison ivy seem nice by comparison? You guessed it: giant hogweed. Good grief, look at the size of this monster!
And this striking but scary alien is spreading into Ohio from Pennsylvania. There was an article in a NE Ohio paper last year about a man who found more than 100 of these things surrounding his barn, calling it “a forest of hogweed.” “I tried to kill them,” he said, “but you can’t destroy them.”
I don’t want to start a panic, but… Run for your lives!
All right, so it’s not another 1950s B movie. It’s just another oddity in God’s great big world.
