City Park Eel Expose, New Orleans, LA

City Park eels.
An excerpted preview from a profile I'm writing after spending a lot of time in City Park on assignment...

How does one eel man let another know that trouble may be afoot?  

Marcel explains. “We’ve got a system for ourselves.  See this here?  This ain’t no dog whistle.  It’s a penguin call.  You know there aren’t any penguins in City Park, right?  If you ever hear a penguin, that means an eel man has spotted a park ranger.  All spears are hidden.”
