Yes, you heard it correctly. One tiny bear was probably responsible for 2,500 deaths–of trout, that is. Thanks to Chris from Strange Maine, for bringing this event to my attention. [He learned of it from USA Today].
Dressed in a yellow slicker and rain hat, the teddy bear apparently fell into a pool at the Fish and Game Department hatchery in Milford, New Hampshire, clogging a drain. This event blocked the flow of oxygen to the pool and suffocated the fish.
Michelle, a commenter on “Strange Maine” calls the tragedy, “Death by cuteness.”
