Hundreds of dead #fish wash up, ‘a mystery’ in Westminster City Park lake in #Colorado, #USA

Fish Kill Alert

Hundreds of dead fish have washed up in Westminster City Lake Park since last week. The 4th of July Fishing Derby has been cancelled because the mystery behind what’s killing the fish remains unsolved.

Neighbors told CBS4 that dozens of dead fish wash up on the shores every day. Each night, crews remove the fish but in the morning there are more.

“Something really funny is going on,” one neighbor named Theresa said.

Theresa loves to walk around City Park Lake in Westminster.

“It’s so pretty. There’s lots of different types of birds,” she said.

Westminster Fire tweeted the upcoming 4th of July Fishing Derby has been cancelled because of the dead fish.

The city is working with an outside company that manages the pond to find out what went wrong.

The lake was stocked with thousands of fish; carp, catfish, bluegill and large mouth bass. Now all of those fish are dying.
