Some 30 zebras and dozens of fishes were found dead in Lake Chamo, a Rift Valley lake located in south Ethiopia, the official Ethiopian News Agency reported Sunday, quoting local people.

The dead zebras are believed to drink water from the lake, the report said.

The report quoted people living within the periphery of the lake as saying that the fishes and zebras were dead as a result of the pollution of the lake.

Experts from south Ethiopia's Arba Minch University were also quoted as saying that the fishes and zebras might have been infected by pollution.

Local people expressed their concern as they consume the water and fishes from the lake, according to the news agency.

Some of them said they were not able to do their day-to-day activities due to the stinking smell that comes from the dead fishes and animals.

The Arba Minch University said it is studying the cause that led the animals to death.
