Deadly Fish Virus Headed For Lake Michigan

A virus that killed thousands of fish appears headed for Lake Michigan.

The viral condition causes Anemia and hemorrhaging in infected fish.

Earlier this year, it was found in Lake Huron about 20 miles from Lake Michigan.

Wildlife experts worry the virus could threaten the sport fishing industry.

Last spring, the virus killed thousands of fish in Lakes Erie and Ontario, as well as Lake Saint Clair and other waterways.
