Venice, Florida -- A Venice neighborhood is dealing with smelly mess in their backyard at a lake off of Ginger Road.
Faun Lake in Venice attracts families like Gavin Hornberger and his friends. But on Sunday, Gavin and his friends were stunned with what they found.
"I saw a whole bunch of dead fish and then I saw a whole bunch of birds trying to eat the fish," he says.
Instead of playing, Gavin and some of his neighbors have been scooping up more dead fish bass and tilapia. And it's not just the fish, residents say, dozens of turtles have disappeared too.
