yeah, standing fresh water such as that & lakes can harbor a brain eating bacteria, that will begin symptoms within 5 days after entering through the nasal area.. real smart swimming in dog droppings,, motor oil,, & god only knows what else... give them the idiots of the month award !!!

What the heck are they swimming in a retention pond for? I have always heard these ponds 'retain' really bad 'stuff' in them. YUCK..Hope he recovers to swim another day and hopefully in cleaner waters.
