EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - There’s a foul smell in the Lamasco Park area of Evansville, and it’s coming from Pigeon Creek.
A viewer sent us video of dozens of dead fish floating in the water.
Officials with the Department of Natural Resources tell us they are investigating and are contacting biologists to see what the problem is and what can be done.
“It really all is preliminary. We don’t know yet. We just got here. We are investigating a fish kill. We will work with other agencies to determine a cause but as of right now we do not know," Josue Flores, Indiana Conservation Officer said.
The investigation is on going and we will make sure to let you know updates as we get them.
Another unrelated fish kill happened Thursday in Warrick County in Little Pigeon Creek near the Yankee Town Public Access. Conservation Officer Lt. Duane Englert said this case was a natural die-off of Asian Carp and that the two fish kill incidents are not connected.
