"After dumping the eels in the lake, the man walked away, explaining to bystanders that 'I just want to save lives.'"

Came for the eel jokes. Leaving satisfied.

I wouldn't know where to get a big pile of eels if I wanted to.  Well, actually now I guess I do.

Luckily, the climate is likely too cold for them to form a permanent population. But just in case, hundreds of Chinese needle snakes have been imported to deal with them.

Not to nitpick, but I think a school of eels is pretty far down on the list of environmental catastrophes facing NYC. I don't know if anyone knows this, but those buildings all around the five boroughs are not native plant species.
I understand we shouldn't introduce non-native species into the environment, but the ecosystem in New York City was disrupted decades ago.

Humans do a lot of dumb things. I live in silicon valley and me and a buddy used to regularly bass fish at nearby Calero reservoir, the closest reservoir to the valley. We'd offen see huge goldfish in the lake. People would move and dump off their pet Goldy at the lake because it was such a short drive and they knew the critter would be okay there. Eventually, they'd get big. Now and then we'd net one, snap a pic, then post a fake goldfish fishing report later online.

I confess I had to use the google to figure out the headline. I had seen that sketch before but it did not leave enough of an impression for me to remember it that well, it's no dead parrot.

the dumping of exotic animals in urban parks isn't new. In cities across the country, nonnative birds, turtles, fish and lizards have settled into, and often disturbed, local ecosystems.

You know sparrows? The most common bird at feeders (where I live)?

Not native to North America.

Some guy thought it would be cool to dump every bird mentioned by Shakespeare into Central Park.

My company dredges stormwater ponds and sometimes they are chock full of goldfish. According to one of the engineering consultants it's common for people of Chinese heritage to put them in the ponds for good luck. He was of Chinese origin so I have no reason to not believe him.

It appears the sparrow was introduced to North America in an attempt to control linden moths - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_s​p​arrow#Introductions.  Pigeons are another invasive species in North America.

It's okay, we wiped out the native pigeon species so it's a wash.

Simultaneously quoting the story and proving you didn't read it is a special kind of Fark only available in 2020.

I love how they made no attempt to film in anyway that would mask or angle out BC's mountains or anything else for that matter.

I was wondering about this headline.

I am glad I finally looked at the article.

Everybody knows that a hover-craft is not street-legal, so how could you get one into Central Park or any non-waterfront park?
