A New York nonprofit is pleading with the public to not flush your poor little unwanted goldfish, after a 14 inch goldfish was found near a wastewater treatment plant.
LOOK AT THIS THING!
The Facebook post reads...
Goldfish can survive year-round in our watershed and can destroy the habitat of native fish. Scientists estimate that tens of millions of Goldfish now live in the Great Lakes.
It's sad there are people out there flushing live goldfish, but I have to admit, this huge fish is fascinating to look at.
