February 9: Hatchery Emptied as Oroville Dam Spillway Crumbles
California state workers are using tanker trucks to evacuate millions of baby native salmon from a fish hatchery threatened by the crumbling spillway of a major dam.
California Department of Water Resources officials say the torrents of mud, concrete and other debris from the Oroville Dam spillway on Thursday is threatening survival of the young salmon at the Feather River hatchery.
Hatchery managers plan to truck the hatchery’s young salmon to another holding point farther away from the dam.
Yep. Days before the “authorities” saw fit to mention to humans that “maybe just maybe you oughta get outa here”, they were evacuating freaking fish.
Trump’s concerned about illegal aliens voting in Kalifornicatia? I’m thinking it’s Democrat salmon, who clearly have more rights and protection than mere humans. You know, the ones who went for Trump in the 2016 general popularity contest.
