    Three dogs die after drinking from a lake.

    Three dogs have died and another seven have become ill after drinking water from a lake in Kent.

    An investigation has been launched amid claims Brooklands Lake, near Powder Mill Lane in Dartford, has been contaminated.

    I want to know why this event was not published better in and around the area of concern.

    At times humans might drink from what looks like a clean lake but I think it was only by chance that this did not happen this time. If a person had died then we might have seen this on the national or the local TV news.

    As there is so much pollution running off fields these days this is not all that surprising.

    I don't think that many people would drink out of a lake these days, especially if the first mouthful had a bad taste.

    Nevertheless, this should not have happened.

    It is also sad that this event was never published in the national press or the national TV news.

    Maybe they think that people losing the lives of their dogs is no indication of how interested they might be in the possible poisoning of people too.

    It actually has been on the BBC news.

    It was reported that a toxic algae bloom had turned the lake poisonous.

    I don't think any humans would drink from a lake that was green or blue tinged.

    Here is the report from The BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-36330955

    Thanks for finding that for me Angie: I cannot catch all of them and I love to get help from the other ROB members.
