Crews remove invasive fish, animals from Mountain Lake Park
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Thousands of non-native critters are being plucked out of San Francisco's Mountain Lake Park as part of an effort to bring back the lakes natural ecology.
Mountain Lake Park in the Richmond District is part of the Presidio run by the National Parks Service.
Its mission is to keep preserves the way nature made them.
The 4-acre pond is one of the few natural bodies of water in the city.
However, over the years people have dumped invasive fish, turtles and other creatures in the lake from home aquariums.
Crews are using nets to scoop out some of the invaders. So far, they have scooped out at least 500 young carp and a largemouth bass.
