City Councilwoman Donna Frye sent a memo to Mayor Jerry Sanders this morning expressing her concern about the yet-unidentified matter that is washing up on Fiesta Island.
She also attached some photos, which are not for the faint of heart, that seem to confirm Frye’s description of the material. She told reporter Rob Davis on Thursday that the material looks like “an unknown source that resembles a variety of shapes ranging anywhere from the back end of a turkey to the ventricles of a cow. If cows have ventricles it’s what they’d look like. With orange starfish-like tops, and gelatinous, floaty, stinky, blobular, stink bombs, I mean, I don’t know. It’s like nothing I’ve ever seen. And there’s more than one.” We’ve posted Frye’s photos below. Scroll at your own risk.
Frye tells the mayor in her letter today:
Until such a time as it is identified and the waters in Mission Bay are determined to be free from contamination, I would strongly encourage, at a minimum, posting additional signs warning people of the shoreline contamination.
Here are the photos she attached, which she took Thursday morning:
Frye said she’s yet to receive a response from the mayor about her memo. I just put a call in to the Mayor’s Office to find out more and am awaiting reply.
