SARASOTA COUNTY - Residents in an Englewood community are dealing with a major fish kill in their lake.

Video uploaded to YouTube and to ABC 7 by Robert Peteski shows a large number of vultures feasting on the dead fish.

The lake is in the Pine Lake neighborhood north of Englewood between State Road 776 and Old Englewood Road.

Officials say low oxygen levels in the lake caused the fish kill. This scene is not all that uncommon in Florida.
