Something Smells Fishy Here…

Here’s something you don’t see every day. Someone dumped nearly 1,000 pounds of dead fish onto a Phoenix, Arizona road. I’ve been to Arizona a few times, and I don’t remember seeing an ocean there.

Police are investigating after hundreds of fish were dumped on the side of the road in north Phoenix.

Arizona Game and Fish confirmed at least 1,000 pounds of carp and gizzard shad, boxes and trash from a spearfishing tournament at Lake Pleasant over the weekend were dumped in the area of 15th Avenue and Pinnacle Peak Road.

“It looks like a big pile of carp, disgusting, rotting fish,” said Brandon Klar, who drove past the pile on his way to work. “Very nausea inducing.”

If it makes you feel better, Brandon, that is exactly how New York City smells.

According to Arizona Game and Fish, one known participant of the tournament actually donated several hundred pounds of fish to the Phoenix Herpetological Society, who were able to share some of the fish with the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center for bears to eat.

Whoa, first there are dead fish and now bears? Everything in Arizona can apparently kill you.

  1. We can all be thankful we don’t live in the area. I don’t even want to think about how nasty that must smell.


  2. Ronni – I love Arizona, and if they didn’t tax pensions, it’s where I would retire. Not sure I’d like to live near the sacred fish dumping ground, though.
