A deer was spotted jumping into the lake on the second basin in early July 2018. The animal died soon after and we learned it may have been afflicted with a disease commonly called "blue tongue". According to Lance Tresenriter, DNR Wildlife Biologist for this area, deer can be tested for the disease, but only within 24 hours of the animal's death. Lance's phone number is 260 367 2186.
