BRITTANY , France, April 13 (UPI) -- A river in France became inundated with large globs of butter after an industrial accident took place on Wednesday morning.

The Odet river in the region of Brittany, which is known as one of the country's prettiest according to The Local, was polluted as large amounts of butter floated in the water.

According to The Connexion, local media reported that hundreds of pounds of butter entered the river which is close to the Beuralia dairy plant.

The plant and local firefighters eventually shut down the flow of water from the plant to the river and began investigating what caused the accident.
