"So, I'd love to know who dumped their 'dad collection' in my recycle bin on north Autumn," wrote Nextdoor user Doug Barnes of the Evergreen Historic District.

A video shot Saturday by Reddit user u/trailsonsmountains found dozens of people swimming in the Wolf River near Wolf River Boulevard and Germantown Parkway (under the bridge near Chick-fil-A).

The debate ranged from the Wolf being totally safe for swimming to some saying it's "absolutely disgusting," citing syringes, pollution, and dead bodies.
