LORETTO, Tenn. (WCYB) - "Folks... please don’t flush your drugs m’kay."

A Middle Tennessee police department is warning people about flushing drugs down the toilet, saying fowls and alligators on meth are possible.

The Loretto Police Department posted about a drug roundup over the weekend on Facebook, but authorities also typed up a special note in the post about how meth and drugs can affect wildlife.

According to the post, ducks, geese, and other fowl visit treatment ponds in the area, and, though the department says their ponds are clean, the sewer workers aren't prepared to deal with meth in the water.

As a result, the department said the following:

Ducks, Geese, and other fowl frequent our treatment ponds and we shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do. Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama. They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help. So, if you need to dispose of your drugs just give us a call and we will make sure they are disposed of in the proper way.

The department also urges the public to contact them to dispose of drugs the proper way or to report community drug abuse.
