BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Wildlife officials in western Montana have intercepted a boat carrying invasive mussels.

The Montana Standard in Butte reports staff at the Anaconda watercraft inspection station found dead and dried-up mussels on the transom and trim tabs of the boat Monday. The boat, which was being taken from the Great Lakes area to Bellingham, Washington, was decontaminated before it was released.

It was the first boat carrying invasive mussels that watercraft inspectors stopped this year.

Boat owners are required to stop at all open watercraft inspection stations.
