It's a staple of science fiction: people unwisely dispose of toxic chemicals, animals eat or are immersed in them, and then become mutant super predators.
The latest toxic chemical to induce our horror movie nightmares is methamphetamine. Police in Loretto, Tennessee are asking people to dispose of their meth safely. Don't just flush it down the toilet. The alligators could get to it and then...change. AL.com quotes the Loretto Police Department:
Ducks, Geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds and we shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do. Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama. They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help. So, if you need to dispose of your drugs just give us a call and we will make sure they are disposed of in the proper way.
