Sleeping with the Fishes

Cool Green Science

In 2016, three drunk men laid waste to the Devil’s Hole in Death Valley National Park and ended up killing a member of one of the world’s rarest fish species. Tumbling over the security fence and shooting the cameras, the drunkards threw their empty beer cans and the remains of their stomach into the water. One individual even left his boxers behind during the ill-fated escapade. Killing one pupfish, the men’s actions also damaged the species’ food sources and egg-laying sites.
