TRAVERSE CITY (WKZO) -- Wildlife officials near Traverse City plan to poison Mitchell Creek to kill a species of so-called "Vampire Fish."

Sea lampreys are parasites that suck out the blood of other creatures.  They are native to the Atlantic Ocean and migrated to the Great Lakes through shipping canals.

U.S Fish and Wildlife Service staff say the pesticide they will start using won't affect any other animals.
