“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”

I think there is going to be one hell of a fish fry in Milford, New Hampshire

Pictured here are some random dead trout

Vandals caused death of 15,000 trout

Vandals who broke into the Milford Fish Hatchery Saturday shut off a water pump that resulted in the death of about 15,000 rainbow trout.
The trout were to be used to stock Monadnock region streams, rivers, lakes and ponds this spring for anglers to enjoy, the New Hampshire Fish and Game said Wednesday.
Fish and Game and Milford police are conducting a joint investigation into the incident.
They said vandals broke into the a water pumping station off North River Road in Milford about 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

"The pump station is located in a popular recreational area, so we are hopeful that anyone who has any information regarding this incident will come forward," Fish and Game conservation officer Lt. Craig Morrocco said in a statement.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Fish and Game at 271-3361 or Milford police at 249-0630.

Just a thought too bad this didn't happen during Lent.
