I was horrified, heartbroken and outraged at your story about the fish kill in the Sutter Bypass. Who could be so callous and or greedy as to let untold thousands of fish die a slow death while suffocating in the 19 mile long canal in the Bypass. Those responsible need to be held accountable. I mean prosecuted to the full extent of the law and spend time behind bars. If you agree with me you can call the Department of Fish & Wildlife (530) 358-2900, the National Marine Fisheries Service (916) 930-3600 and the Sutter County District Attorney’s Office (530) 822-7330 and demand an investigation and prosecution of those responsible for this horrible disaster.
