Newslincolncounty.com has just received a report of a huge pile of eel carcasses, perhaps 500 pounds worth, dumped off to the side of Big Creek Road a half-mile east of the Upper Dam.
Sheriff’s deputies confirmed the illegal dump to a local resident. They say the stench is horrendous. They’re especially concerned about citizens who run or walk along that portion of Big Creek Road, especially those who bring their pets. There is also a concern for wildlife.
We have a call into the Sheriff’s Office.
