Dozens of dead or nearly dead ducks and geese were spotted at the Sugar House Park pond Saturday evening.
Ty Cannon, a Sugar House resident, said he was at the park Saturday playing Frisbee with his dog when his girlfriend, Roni Stern, spotted a few dead baby ducks floating in the water. The couple looked across the pond and began counting the number of floating bird carcasses.
"We lost count at 35 ducks," Cannon said. "There were some geese who were about 80, 90 percent dead, and were flopping around there a little bit."
