Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb and DNR Director Cameron F. Clark announced today that state Rep. Lloyd B. Arnold has been appointed director of law enforcement for the Indiana DNR beginning Oct. 23.
Arnold has been the state representative for District 74 since November 2012, serving Crawford, Dubois, Orange, Perry and Spencer counties. As a state representative, he served as vice chair of the Natural Resources Committee and was a member of the Agriculture, Veterans Affairs and Public Safety, and Elections and Appointments committees.
A July carp kill at Roush Lake in Huntington County resulted from a virus that only affects common carp and koi, according to DNR fisheries biologists.
Fish collected from the lake and sent to Purdue University in July tested positive for koi herpes virus (KHv).
On July 20, DNR officials received reports of dead carp in the lake. Five days later, fisheries biologist Jed Pearson collected dead carp and captured six live carp and transported them to Purdue's Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab (PADDL) in West Lafayette.
