Tahoe-before-after

(Left) before people brought whales to Lake Tahoe, (right) after people brought whales in Lake Tahoe, this is what the aftermath of Lake Tahoe would look like in 5 million years later if people didn't remove the whales.

Lake Tahoe Whale Disater is an event that occured due to people bringing many whale species into Lake Tahoe, California, after SeaWorld and other marine parks during the 1950's to 1990's could no longer afford to keep them any longer (other than the ones that are still present in Sea World parks). All species of whales (both toothed whales and baleen whales) such as the Pacific bottlenose dolphins, Commerson's dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins, common dolphins, common killer whales, white killer whales, false killer whales, pygmy killer whales, melon-headed whales, short-finned pilot whales, long-finned pilot whales, white pilot whales, wholphins, white beluga whales, black beluga whales, horned narwhals, common narwhals, Harbour porpoises, Vaquitas, Finless porpoises, Pygmy sperm whale, Dwarf sperm whales, Gray whales, Common minke whales, Antarctic minke whales, Humpback whales, Right whales, and Pygmy right whales, are causing some negative impact to native species, including the endangered Lyrebetta and the Tahoan Perch, by hunting them very frequently. All species of whales also appear to be causing Lake Tahoe to rise due to their frequent ramming into some land rocks and soil, along with their ability to produced small amounts of water/pee from their bodies, which would possibly cause Lake Tahoe to become a sort of a freshwater ocean (probably about 4 times bigger than the natural Lake Tahoe), which would cause habitat loss and endanger some other native fish species.
