Thousands of fish die in Emporia park lake

EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — A state biologist says decomposing leaves probably caused the deaths of thousands of fish in city lake in Emporia.

KVOE-AM reports ( ) the die-off happened over the weekend in the lake at Emporia’s Peter Pan Park. More than a thousand dead shad lined the shore on Sunday, with some carp and buffalo also found dead.

State Wildlife and Parks fisheries biologist Carson Cox says leaves that fell from surrounding leaves were decomposing on the lake bottom, reducing the oxygen. Cox says shad do poorly in low oxygen. Other fish survived by staying closer to the surface, where oxygen was higher.

Cox believes bass and bluegill are still plentiful in the lake. He says the state will have 600 adult catfish ready to go in October if the lake needs restocking. –

Genesis 1:26 “Then God said…, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”

Ecclesiastes 9:12 “For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net, or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time, as it suddenly falls on them.”

Mankind has proved itself to be in Satan’s image. Mankind has been revoked of any rule over the animal kingdom as the destroyer angel brings devastation to the wildlife as a preview of what mankind can expect to rain down upon itself and surface from the depths of a poisoned planet. The rain of dead fowl and sea life coming to the surface will reveal the stagnation of mankind’s own future fate. The curse coupled with plague is ever widening on this planet. Look beyond Arkansas children. Remain steadfast in your faith. Only a remnant will survive what has come in upon this planet.
