A Toxic Blue-Green Algae Bloom Has Killed 4 Dogs In Texas’ Lady Bird Lake This Summer
We’re used to terrifying bugs taking over Texas, but not silent killers that lurk in the water. A toxic blue green algae bloom in Austin’s Lady Bird Lake has already claimed the lives of four dogs, likely because symptoms usually become apparent after it’s already too late.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
