Attack of the Killer Teddy Bear…

September 26th, 2006

It appears that someone has maliciously murdered 2500 trout.  That’s right, 2500.  Some devious, destructive person has discovered a plan to wipe out a whole pool of trout destined for stocking.  They evidently snuck into the hatchery under the cover of night and cast the unsuspecting Paddington Bear, complete with raincoat and hat, into the stock tank.  This heartless act clogged the drain, leaving the poor defensless trout without much needed oxygen.  There were no survivors.

This account has caused the New Hampshire Fish and Game to issue the warning:  “RELEASE OF ANY TEDDY BEARS into the fish hatchery water IS NOT PERMITTED.” I guess that warning is a day late and a dollar short. 

Was this the action of a crazed animal rights fanatic, determined that if these poor fish could not live free, they were better off dead?  Or was it the actions of misguided sportman, determined that stocked trout harm the natural fisheries, and therefore he was determined to stop the madness?  Maybe it was just a little girl in pony tails, who accidently dropped her teddy bear…but then where’s the fun in that option?

So, no teddy bears in the New Hampshire hatcheries now.  What’s next?  No liquids on airplanes?  What’s the world coming to?
