More than 120 birds in Canada’s oil heartland of Alberta were killed after getting caught in a pond of oil sands byproducts operated by the country’s largest producer Suncor Energy, the local regulator said on Tuesday.

The Alberta Energy Regulator said the animals, waterfowl and songbirds, were found at the Fort Hills oil sands mine jointly owned by Suncor, France’s Total and Canadian mining company Teck Resources.
