Dead Fish Dumped At Meadow Grounds

Two Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission employees dump nets of fish into the bucket of a backhoe Friday morning. The countless fish would eventually be discarded into a nearby disposal pit, which was reportedly covered in its entirety as officials wrapped up their fish salvage efforts at Meadow Grounds Lake.
