KTUU (in the video above) reported Sunday night about rotting fish dumped on the side of a hill near Wasilla. Here’s a little more information:
The discarded fish, that appear to be salmon, are lying just off a hiking trail near mile 14.5 of Knik Goose Bay Road. The overpowering stench would suggest the fish have been there for a while.
“Discarding fish waste on public or private property or along roads, pull-offs, and trails can attract bears into residential areas and result in fines ranging from $300 to $1,000” wrote Ken Marsh, a public information officer with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, in a press release sent out Sunday afternoon.
That’s not only a waste of meat but also disgusting and gross.
Hundreds of fish lay strewn on a hillside near Wasilla, rotting and being devoured by flies and maggots. Officials with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game say illegal dumping of fish can attract fines up to $1,000.https://t.co/NUS3f3odaO
