Hundreds of fish wash up dead along Cougar Creek, Canada - 12th Oct 2011

Scores of dead juvenile Coho, Chum and Cutthroat Trout were spotted this past weekend along a stretch of Cougar Creek.

Passersby noticed the dead fish on the banks of the creek on Saturday afternoon and contacted the Ministry of Environment.

Pete Willows, a salmonid enhancement volunteer with the Cougar Canyon Streamkeepers, and his son Steve brought buckets of rainwater to the scene in a desperate bid to save as many fish as possible.

But it was too late and they only managed to save a handful of fish.

"We were able to save six fish, two Cutthroats, three Coho and the other one was a Brown Bullhead," said Willows.

"We also saved two sticklebacks." It's not known what caused the fish to die.
