From the Niagara Falls Review:
It’s like that famous Bugs Bunny episode.
Up against the American government and frustrated by a low bounty on his head, Bugs becomes a master of mischief, pulling stunts -including shutting down the American Falls.
Funny and cute in cartoons but impossible in real life, it was thought.
But 40 years ago, water rushing down the American channel, thundering over the precipice and crashing onto the jagged rocks below, stopped.
