The animal of the day is the Asian Carp. (Did you know: These fish are making their way up to the Mississippi River, and may soon enter Lake Michigan. Though there is no natural rivers connecting Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River, there are man made canals that used to shipping routes.
The State Of Michigan sued the City of Chicago to try to get these canals closed so the fish can’t enter the Great Lake, but lost the case. Apparently shipping routes are more important that a super hugely invasive fish reaching one of the most important natural resources in America.
Oh, and these fish WIG OUT when they hear or feel motor boats, and start jumping like crazy. People have been killed by the fish jumping out of the water and smacking them in the face and scratching them with their spines!
