AMD Dog

Acid mine drainage is major problem in towns that used to heavily rely on coal mining. This dog had just jumped into an orange river that was polluted. He then jumped into a part of the river that is going through passive treatment in order to decrease the acidity. As he fetches the stick the orange iron leaves a trail behind him.
