Dogs fall ill after river turns a strange color

The River Ouse in Cambridgeshire, England has been reportedly changing color on a regular basis.
The peculiar phenomenon, which has already been reported to environmental authorities, has reportedly been occurring for months with the water turning alternate shades of green and blue.

"It changes color, sometimes it's blue, sometimes it's green," said Huntingdon resident Natalia Maca.

"It's not just the one day, it happens nearly everyday. It's been happening for months."

"I've called up the Environment Agency and they just keep giving me a reference number and say that they will report it and investigate but nothing has changed."

Concerns have also been raised following reports that dogs have been falling ill after swimming in it.

It is thought that the strange coloration could be the result of an industrial leak somewhere nearby.

I wonder if there is a plant near by that makes anti-freeze? Fluorescent additives are added to it to identify types...The "green" in antifreeze is fluoresein. This is a yellow dye that has a very greenish shade, especially when UV light hits it. Not sure what the blue could be.

Hmmmm, England, has been reported with no action. They obviously don't care about dogs. So......, Throw a kid in it and when he gets sick report that. Make sure they understand you threw the kid in...
