SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife Fisheries and Parks is reporting what they describe as "a massive fish kill" in the Pearl River.

Authorities say thousands of dead fish and other wildlife have turned up in the river in both Mississippi and Louisiana for miles south of Bogalusa.

Representatives from the Mississippi and Louisiana Departments of Environmental Quality are on the scene now.

Officials are reporting a discoloration in the water, but no cause has been determined at this time.
