Coyote picking off the birds at Echo Park Lake

echparklake-cam.jpgEcho Park Lake was drained a few weeks ago for an improvement project. The lake bed is fenced off. On a walk around the edge of the park today, Thomas DeBoe told The EastsiderLA, he saw one duck carcass through the fence and a coyote stalking across the muddy lake bottom toward a collection of park geese, which were "frantically marching to nowhere for an escape." There also were dead fish and the stench coming off the lake was awful, he said.
