Over 1,000 whitefish found dead in Yellowstone River
Vicki Schwarz had friends in from out of state, so they decided to float down the Yellowstone River on Sunday afternoon. They put in at Mayor’s Landing near Livingston, six people on the raft. But as the Livingston schoolteacher rowed them along, it became clear something strange was going on.
“I noticed as I was paddling that like every 5 feet I could see a belly-up whitefish,” Schwarz said. “It was really sad. I didn’t know what to tell anyone.”
