Thousands of dead fish at Angrignon Park

Posted By: Laura Casella · 2/15/2013 1:01:00 PM

It's a disturbing and frightening sight.

Thousands of fish, most of them dead, trapped in a small, shallow part of the lake at Angrignon park.

How they got trapped, or died, remains a mystery, but people walking by are concerned.

Tony Di Lorenzo brought the situation to CJAD's attention. He was out walking his dogs as he does everyday, when he came across all the dead fish in the small body of water.

"It broke my heart to see this, so many suffering fish, that shouldn't be stuck in this small body of water," he says. 

The fish are of different sizes and several are dead lying on the snow.

Nearby resident Shelly Vince was also surprised to come across this as she was walking her dog one day.

"It's disgusting and sad," she says, "not a nice sight. In the twenty years I've been walking here, never have I seen this."

The city is investigating.

      @PabloBC Who cares, really?
      There have been mass fish die-offs all over the world for 2 years now. Its a sign of methane coming from the earths cracks. Its a precursor of earthquakes, that's why there has also been a major uptick of earthquakes in the past 2 years.
      This is the first I've heard of it happening in a small secluded body of water.. So yeah, I'd say its something to care about and look into.

    Hmm...'spoken' like a true ignorant person (idiot in the less PC circles).

    Thanks for the story, CJAD & Co. - reminds me of the scores of dead red-winged black birds - hopefully the reason for the thousands of dead fish will be solved.

    This type of environmental activity has been going on for atleast 8 years.
    Ten thousand fish floating in the st lawrence rver, pigeons etc.
    "The scientists are baffled" at what precisely is the problem.

    When i personaly soicited epedimiology to wake up to the ramifications on the west nile virus 8 years ago to prompt them to actually see the the west nile was actually here, it took them 4 months to admit.

    its disease that causes a whole gauntlet of effects one being neuorological disorders, comas, and death.
    2 possibillities=
    Toxins ( Chemicals)
    Pathogens.( living organisms viruses bacterias )
    I beleive its pathogens hands down.

    So where is it alll coming from?
    The vector?

    Ahhhh now thats a pesky journey worth understanding !
    Im a laymen, uncertified but i know

    Its going to get plenty worse in this historica time frame.
    History is repeating itself, be wiser.

    Hi All
    This is a normal life balance recycle in closed bodies of water during especially longer winters when ice takes time to brake the bodies of water suffer lack of oxygen and fish dies.. the strongest lives..
