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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
