There was widespread confusion in the city today after the fish within the local canal were seen jumping out of the water because of the smell.
Local marine biologists were on the scene to witness the bizarre incident that is thought to be the first such incident ever seen.
One local trout fish told us:
“We couldn’t take the stench anymore. The water was just unbearably smelly. Given the heat today the build up of algae was too overpowering for us to stay in there.”
