Very true, Val.
Whether a non-native animal is deliberately turned loose or they get out accidentally, it always seems to spell ecological disaster for the native species.
There are rogue hippos in South America now, and they're causing all sorts of havoc. Instead of just killing them off, the government is trying to keep them contained and controlled. It's not working very well, especially since there are bleeding heart groups who say they should be left alone to be 'free' and 'wild'. Sounds kinda familiar, doesn't it?
