NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Passersby spotted a man in what appeared to be a cook’s uniform dumping two trash bags filled with live eels into Prospect Park Lake on Sunday night, according to a report. 

Parkgoers told the Brooklyn Paper the man dragged the bags through the park to the side of the lake around 7:30 p.m. 

After one of the bags split open, the man started dumping the eels into the lake, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens resident Andrew Orkin told the paper. In a video posted to Twitter, fisherman Dominick Pabon can be heard confronting the man as he deposits the eels into the lake.
