Warning Regarding Toxic Algae In Ponds and Lakes

Recommended Posts

There have been several instances of this now. One very near to me here in NC that showed a photo of the disgusting green water. Why ever would someone think that was ok to swim in?

This stuff scares the crap out of me because we do swim in the summer (we went yesterday actually) and there's always algae in the water, but there is plenty of algae that isn't toxic. 

I'm wondering if the photos of her three dogs are from that day because that water looks normal, which makes it even more frightening.

Don, I can only see part of the story in your link but that was the one near me. Also happened in TX. And I saw a post of someone's dog in an old bathtub that was full of yucky algae water. Yuck.
Years ago I removed the birdbath in my backyard after my dogs all got diarrhea from drinking out of it.

You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Hi Ducky, 

You might try viewing it using incognito mode in your browser.  If you can only see part of it you are probably at your article limit for free views with that site. Usually incognito mode will get you around that.  

This toxic algae is as scary as the flesh eating bacteria that people are contracting when they go swimming.
