THE PLAGUE: Hundreds of Dead Fish Found in Pond at National Mall, Let The Jokes Begin

Approximately 1,000 dead fish have been found floating in a pond at the National Mall, the National Park Service has confirmed.

A Park Service crew will test the water and algae levels at the the Constitution Gardens pond Thursday.

However, the number is not unusual for that pond, officials said, due to the construction and design of the area. The Park Service said it’s long stressed the importance of redesigning the pond to maintain a better ecological balance.

The pond is at the top of the list for construction upgrades.

It could take several days to determine the cause of the incident.
