Connecticut and New York are among nine northeastern states petitioning the Environmental Protection Agency to limit air pollution that drifts in from the Rust Belt.

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says the state has the highest level of ozone in the Northeast, due in large part to interstate pollution that comes from coal-fired power plants in states likes Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) released a new version of its ten-year plan for wildlife conservation last week. The plan describes the threats facing different plants, animals or habitats in the state, including White Nose Syndrome.

Last weekend, environmental conservation police in Connecticut charged a fisherman in Milford with possession of illegal fish. He allegedly had two striped bass hidden on his boat. That’s not unusual. What’s unusual is how police found the fish. It was the first time the state’s conservation police used a police dog to find suspected fish poachers.

 

Officer Logiodice is one of four K9 officers on staff. He says his dog, Ruger, is a pretty high-energy dog.
