Dozens of turtles, fish killed in county park

Deaths from Fish and Wildlife’s baited nets called unusual

By Meaghan Downs

Fish and Wildlife officer David Goodlett and Jason Chesser with Parks and Recreation maintenance, with the assistance of Officer Brian Wooldridge, tossed back the fish they found wriggling among the dead last Thursday.  
They were able to save one small turtle that quickly ducked beneath lake weeds and disappeared from sight.
Goodlett initially estimated last Thursday that there were about 500 total dead fish and turtles caught in the three commercial fishing nets placed in the middle of the Anderson County community park lake.
