PELICAN RAPIDS, Minn. – Zebra mussels have been confirmed in Lake Lida, a popular Otter Tail County lake near here, according to a news release issued Wednesday by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.


DNR crews found two zebra mussels late last week, the release stated. The mussels were found about a half-mile from a private lake access where earlier this month a lakeshore resident found a can with two adult zebra mussels attached to it.
