    Default River Bottles in Colorado- Warning

    The Garfield County Sheriff has issued a warning about "river bottles" turning up on river banks.

    The Sheriff says over the past week, residents of Garfield, Eagle and Pitkin Counties have encountered bottles turning up on river banks.

    According to the Garfield County Sheriff, the contents of the bottles are "hazardous to human health." The substance inside the bottles is a blue and purple liquid that is "corrosive and flammable." Bottles are about the size of a water bottle and have duct tape on them.

    Do not touch call local Sheriffs Dept.

    What kind of sick person is doing this?

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Saw a little bit about this on the news. Yeah, if you find any, do what losthwy said, call the Sheriffs Dept.

    Sick, sick people do this Dave. I hope this person/people are caught soon.
    The only thing human kind ever learned through history, is that through history, human kind has learned nothing.

    Very confusing story.
    Somebody has gone to a lot of trouble to make these bottles full of "corrosive and flammable" liquid. Then, for whatever reason, they've thrown them into rivers. For what purpose??
    Probably not a threat to the rivers, because the bottles are sealed.
    Really a mystery. But trying to make sense of an idiot's mind is a waste of time.

    Hopefully they're all gone by the time I get to the Frying Pan for fishing in a couple of months!

    On a lighter note!!! I fish with a guy that brings stuff with him that is flammable and corrosive! I tried it once and had to sit down and 'rest'. Burned the whole way down!!! Pretty sure the Sheriff would want to know about that as well.
    Hopefully they catch this person, but I agree with the above post, probably not a big harm to the river.

    True. If the Animas River can survive the Gold King Mine spill, the bottles are likely pretty insignificant to the river. I wouldn't drink from them, though, and maybe not from your buddy's bottles, either!!

    Maybe the mind of a druggie is too irrational to understand, but dumping them into a river certainly draws attention to it.

    Lots of better options: Dumpster; Burning; ...

    Colorado will just pass a law making it legal to manufacture Meth with the excuse it will keep the rivers clean!

    It is the one bottle "shake and bake" method of cooking methamphetamine. In Wisconsin, there was an alert about discarded meth bottles along our freeways.
