ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is extending the comment period on the proposed gypsy moth quarantine for Lake and Cook Counties.  The original 30 day comment period will be extended another 15 days to 5 p-m on March 12th.  The quarantine is meant to slow the human assisted spread of the gypsy moth that is already well established in both Lake and Cook Counties.  Comments were taken at a Tuesday hearing in Two Harbors and will be taken at a hearing in Grand Marais on February 25th.  Comments can also be emailed to gypsy.moth@state.mn.us
