Today's news story comes from the Yomiuri Online.
Imagine this. You work in a small school. It's the 4th of July and you come to work early despite it already being oppressively hot to find a weird smell coming from the pool area of the school. You walk to the pool and find a total of 30 dead bluegill fishes floating in the pool.
That is exactly what happened in a small town called Kurate in Fukuoka prefecture. But, that's not the worse part. The same thing happened the next day, only with 40 bluegills. How could the same thing happen two days in a row? Well the fact that pool is outside helps. The pool itself is surrounded by a two meter tall chain link fence with a lock on the door, but there is no roof, so who ever decided to pull this off just threw the fish over the fence with enough good aim so they landed in the pool.
Well, I don't what else to say about this one. The police are looking into it, but, personally, I think this is just a damn good prank. It would be terrible to be one of the students that like to swim because the swimming pool was suppose to open on the 4th.

It is now time for the word of the day. Today's word is プール(ぷうる). It is pronounced puuru and it means pool.
