Brain Eating Amoeba?

Since it isn't April Fools, this story is just plain disturbing.

Granted, I doubt that the glacier-fed lakes around Calgary will be affected any time soon, but still. Inhale one tiny little micro-organism, and a couple of weeks later, you die - and the lovely little critter has had a feast on your brain. It really does sound like a bad horror flick.

Not meaning to make light of a very serious issue, but wasn't there a D&D monster like this? Or am I thinking of something from Cthulu.....
