The state has confirmed type E botulism (botulism has always been in the lake Ontario & Erie),but zebra/Quagga mussels and gobies seem to make it worse. NY State 1-800#  is no longer coming out collecting birds for testing. "The sky is not falling", precautions should be taken for dog owners on/near beaches of dogs rolling/eating dead birds & fish.





Pvelyk            You are right on with your quote


" I seem to remember an article way back about muscles filtering the bad stuff, Gobies eating zebras and bird eating gobies and getting sick.  Perfect example of bad things going up food chain. "
