Sagehen ants on National Geographic TV

We provided stock footage of Sagehen's slave-making ants for National Geographic's "When Aliens Attack!".

This segment about official protocol when encountering space aliens reminds me a lot of the brouhaha after the accidental discovery of the California wolverine by Sagehen researchers.

Much like in the program, Sagehen researcher Bill Zielinsky was presented with an official Forest Service plan for the encounter (which he himself had prepared many years before for just this eventuality, never really thinking it would happen, of course).
