Cancer City has gained attention around the world and is a city for crayfish.

The customer had one year planted 20,000 crayfish in a stream on his property. All crayfish chose to emigrate to adjacent lakes and streams outside his fishing rights. The Vision Division was asked to try to solve this problem. Cancer city aims to try to attract the crayfish back and create easy fishing when in season. Then the fisherman can walk along the path, lift the roofs and pick up the crayfish from their homes. The crayfish have been given many hiding places in the city to even out the odds.
