Was the unidentified man trying to save the sea creatures? Other people who were at the park told Brooklyn Paper that the man was dressed in all white like a chef and could be heard saying he wanted to save the eels. residents quickly pointed out that putting them in the lake would kill other species already there. The video taken above shows the man responding by saying he was trying to save the eels.
