Yesterday at the grocery store I stopped at the customer service counter to ask if someone could maybe water the plants outside. It was hot and they were really droopy.
The lady was nice and she said she would try. We started talking and I mentioned that watching the plants wither bothered me after what had happened at Ashley Pond — all the fish and crayfish having been bagged in burlap and taken off to the Eco-Station.
The lady at the counter said “no, no” and insisted she had seen them netted and heard they were rescued. I told her that this was, unfortunately, a rumor. All the fish and all the crayfish were killed. Unlike the ducks, they did not get to live happily ever after.
A lot of people who followed what happened at Ashley Pond a couple of weeks ago might say that the mass slaughter was necessary because the fish were “diseased.”
This idea appeared in the local newspaper. The pond’s non-feathered life was portrayed as being everything short of radioactive.
