BARTOW COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

People in a metro Atlanta neighborhood are holding their noses after hundreds of dead fish were spotting floating in a popular bond in Bartow County.

Thousands of fish washed ashore a lake at Dellinger Park.

City officials told CBS46 the fish are dying from suffocation. They blame the number of animals dying in the lake on the number of animals defecating in the water.
