LORETTO, Tenn. — Think gators are bad enough already? Just imagine one on meth.
In a now-viral Facebook post, a Tennessee police department warned its followers against flushing drugs, a practice that could possibly contaminate retention ponds and harm animals.
"Now our sewer guys take great pride in releasing water that is cleaner than what is in the creek, but they are not really prepared for meth. Ducks, Geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds, and we shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do."
The department then quipped: "Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama. They've had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help."
The post continued: "If you need to dispose of your drugs, just give us a call and we will make sure they are disposed of in the proper way."
