That’s methed-up, man!
Seriously…..How out of control is the meth problem when it effects wildlife after the treatment plant discharges the effluent?
Over the weekend, police in Tennessee asked locals not to flush their drugs down the toilet for fear of turning alligators into “meth-gators.”
After officers witnessed a suspect try and dispose of methamphetamine in a lavatory, the Loretto Police Department warned residents on social media that such actions could create “methed up animals,” CNN reported.
Police shared the advice on Facebook, writing: “Now our sewer guys take great pride in releasing water that is cleaner than what is in the creek, but they are not really prepared for meth.
“Ducks, Geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds and we shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do. Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama. They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help.”Loretto, Tennessee Police Department
Police said they can destroy any drugs safely—without putting critters at risk.
