A deadly parasite is killing thousands of ducks on Lake Winnibigosish in northern Minnesota and biologists say there is little they can do to stop it.

Department of Natural Resources waterfowl experts believe about 3,000 scaup, also known as bluebills, have died on the popular hunting and fishing lake, along with several hundred coots. They are blaming the ongoing die-off on trematodes, a small intestinal parasite that lives in snails.
