Several pets in the area have died from the bacterial bloom this summer and I'm kind of worried about my pals out at the pond. I couldn't find much information about it being toxic to freshwater animals, but one article suggested that it can kill sea turtles.



Here's two of the mud-butts begging me for snacks.​

I don't know- I saw an article about it earlier today, and it only mentioned people's pet dogs. :(

Oh no :( I guess I'll keep an eye out and alert someone if there's trouble. Some of these turtles have been around for a while, so I'm hoping that they know best.
