BELGRADE – There are fish swimming in a pond near Belgrade that are not supposed to be there – and they could put local trout populations at risk.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is trying to clean up a pond where someone stocked small-mouth bass. This installment of This Week in Wildlife is a closer look at their efforts and what they’re doing to prevent the spread of the non-native species.
