KHV Outbreak in Boise, Idaho Park Ponds

Several ponds in a park near the Boise Depot have an outbreak of KHV (Koi Herpes Virus.)  Authorities believe it happened when someone dumping their fish in the ponds.  Almost 100 Koi in the ponds have died already, the rest are to be mechanized to prevent the spread of the virus in the area.  Cleanup of the ponds is estimated to cost the city up to $10,000.00.  Read more about it here.
