Dead Fish in Local Pond

MERIDIAN -- A warning by Idaho Fish and Game was sent out Tuesday alerting residents to contaminated fish in a Meridian pond.

The city of Meridian recently treated aquatic weeds in the pond in the newly opened Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park.

The treatment apparently killed fish stocked in the pond. Fishery officials say the fish may contain enough copper from the treatment to make them unfit for human consumption.

Fish and Game warns anyone who may have picked up dead fish at the pond not to eat them.
