Swigle said there are three options for removing the goldfish from Teller Lake #5. These include: electrofishing, which involves stunning the fish in order to physically remove them from the lake; killing the fish with rotenone, a chemical that interferes with respiration; and draining the lake and leaving it dormant. If the fish are physically removed, they could be fed to injured bald eagles, ospreys and hawks at a raptor center, Swigle said. (Photo Credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife)

Just a handful of the koi goldfish were likely dumped into the Colorado lake (shown here) a few years ago. The fish are not native to the lake and don't occur naturally anywhere in North America, according to fish biologist Ben Swigle with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The koi goldfish has at least one thing in common with those downstream fish. They both like to eat plankton and small insects. That means the goldfish would compete with native fish, some of which have been there since the land was settled, for food. (Photo Credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife)

I think it’s an incredible deed to help out animals when we can. When it comes to disabled or injured animals, I thought I had seen just about everything on my daily social media feed scrolls, until this morning. I saw a strange photo of a goldfish who was strapped to some odd-looking device.
