Who's Spiking the Ponds?
Via Death By 1000 paper cuts comes a disturbing story of interest to wading anglers.
A man wading in the water at the Green Lake Boating Center in Seattle felt a “sharp jab in his foot” Sunday while wading with his family. Pat Boltz reached down and found a metal rod. The rod was sharpened by a machine on the end and it hadn’t gotten there by accident. Nor were the other 38 “spikes”, 2-3 ft. long, found by Seattle police divers.
It sounds like something right off of the screen from Snopes.com but here is a link to the Seattle Times story about the painful discovery. We hope our friends in the Pacific North West quite literally watch their step.
