A bag of live eels isn’t something you see expect to find in a public washroom, but that’s what happened Sunday evening at a mall in east-end Toronto.
Scarborough Town Centre Mall marketing director Jai Lee says a customer reported seeing two eels in the washroom and security staff went in to collect the slithery fish.
She says one of the eels had escaped from a bag, but was quickly captured and the pair of eels was taken to a nearby pet shop that specializes in fish.
Lee says they don’t believe it was a prank.
She says the eels were a variety that is sold as food and it’s believed a customer simply forgot the bag in the washroom.
Lee says nobody has come forward to claim the eels.
