    Highly toxic blue-green algae

    Thank you, cassiesmom, for the warning about blue-green algae in "Random Thoughts".
    I would like to continue the warning here, because it is a real danger to animals.

    Just yesterday we had a discussion with our veterinarians about the toxicity of blue-green algae. It can cause death within minutes.

    I'm bumping up this old thread because a new report just came out from a neighboring county. This is a nice forest preserve location outside Chicago. So please, if it's observed near you again this year, please be careful.

    "The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County is advising caution after a blue-green algae bloom was confirmed in Herrick Lake at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve in Wheaton."
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
