    Yogurt Company Pays State After Mishap Kills Thousands Of Fish

    MINSTER, Ohio -- The Dannon Company is paying the state more than $10,000 after an accident at a western Ohio plant killed thousands of fish in surrounding waterways.

    In September a yogurt plant in Minster released a caustic chemical that overwhelmed the local wastewater treatment plant and spilled into the Miami and Erie Canal. The spill caused the death of 33,000 fish in the canal.

    Now the company said it will pay more than $10,000 to the Ohio Division of Wildlife and make a $5,000 donation to the Miami and Erie Canal Corridor Association.

    It is nice seeing how they will pay less than 50 cents per fish. We need to get stiffer penalties than a cheap fine. A company like that could offer a mill like it was nothing.
