In either case, the person possessing the piranha must present proof of disposition to the enforcing officer within 30 days. If the fish are not disposed of as specified, the officer will destroy the piranlia under authority of Section 2189 of the Fish and Game Code. In some cases, the o \vT3crs of piranlia may wish to donate them to a public zoo or aquarium like Marineland or Steinhart. These persons may apply to the DFG for a permit to do this, or to transport the piranha to any other destination. Under no circumstances may anyone release piranha alive into the waters of California, the DFG warned. The fish are highly carnivorous and will attack, tear to bits and eat any living creature that gels near them. Piranha are very prolific in th e i r natural environment, reach maturity in about 18 months and will eliminate almost every other fish species in the area they inhabit. If these deadly piranha ever take hold m any California waters the effects will be disastrous, the DFG said. Department spokesmen expressed the hope that all piranha owners would cooperate fully with the DFG in the elimination of this menace. Game has laiuiched an intensive drive aimed at tlie destruction or removal from California of the piranha, a fierce S o u I li American fish witli sharp teeth that it uses with deadly effect on other living creaiures, including man. Piranha present an obvious threat to State waters and fish ei'ies. and anyone who possesses a piranha, other tlian tlie owner or operator of a public aquarium with a special permit, is in violation of California law, Uie DFG said. Numbers of piranlia have been imported into California over the years, often under different names, by tropical fish dealers and are now in many private home collections as well as dealers' aquaria. They are especially numerous m Southern California, where an estimated 5,000 piranha are illegally owned. DFG wardens are currently contacting all pet stores dealers, suppliers or individuals who may have any piranha in posses sion. Unless they have a special DFG permit, tliese persons are POOR PARKERS Those over 65 should file for social security San Bernardino County residents 65 or over who have not yet applied for social security benefits were advised today to file a claim now even if they are not planning to retire right away. In issuing the above advice. Jean B. Gifford, field representative from the San Bernardino social security office, pointed out that several local people who applied last year found that they had lost some benefits by not applying earlier. "We have found," said Mrs. Gifford, "that the best way for a person to protect his social security benefit rights is to apply at 65 whether or not he intends to go on working. Even if no benefits are payable right away, there's an advantage in havmg your claim already approved when you actually retire. With entitlement already established, the benefits can be started immediately when we are notified of the retirement date." Mrs. Gifford said that according to the latest figures there are nearly 19 million Americans who are 65 or over. Of that total, more than 14 million have I start soon $85,000 recreation budget gets commission approva The Redlands Recreation Commission today ordered a study of the cost of a summer softball league and approved a ten- 1 tative $85,000 budget for next year.
