According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the Army Corps of Engineers will announce this afternoon that an Asian Carp DNA sample has been discovered in Lake Michigan though no fish have been found in the lake. The announcement comes just hours after the U.S. Supreme Court denied the State of Michigan's request for an injunction to shut down the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal.
