Description

Last night there was some sort of festival going on, and at least a couple dozen sky lanterns where released right over the lake -- full of shorebirds. It's a bird sanctuary. They're illegal to release in this state -- how woud someone get permission from the city for this? There were police cars everywhere, so I know it was an 'official' celebration. Not only is this a danger to wildlife from the trash, but its littering and a fire hazard to the surrounding neighborhood. This sort of stuff needs to be stopped.
