Goldfish survives being flushed down loo




A goldfish has survived getting flushed down a toilet after it was rescued from a nearby sewage plant.

The unloved pet was found at a treatment plant near East Kilbride in Scotland.

An employee at the works, Jake Huey, spied the goldfish
flailing on a mesh filtering screen. He promptly scooped up
the creature and hastened to the main treatment building, where he put
it in water in an emergency tank.

The Daily Telegraph reported Huey as saying: ''Obviously someone
thought their pet was on its last legs and flushed it down the toilet,
which obviously we wouldn't advise.

"The fish has rallied as it made its way through the waste water
network underneath the streets of East Kilbride and popped up in our
screens totally revived.

"This is one lucky little fish. We just need to find a good home for him now."

The plucky poisson has been given the nickname Pooh, and is being looked after at the Philipshill Waste Water Treatment Works until it can be found a new owner.
