Bad Paddington, Bad Paddington

This one has already made the blog rounds today but it is so bizarre that it "bears" another mention. It seems that a normally harmless toy teddy bear went on a rampage and killed over 2500 rainbow trout fry at a Milford, New Hampshire fish hatchery. The wayward bear clogged a drain and blocked oxygen flow to the pool.

In a statement, Fawcett noted (quote) "RELEASE OF ANY TEDDY BEARS into fish hatchery water IS NOT PERMITTED."

Tip of the fishing hat to fellow fishy blogs: Moldy Chum, and The Daily Bag Limit.

Update: Here is a link with an actual picture of the offending bear.
