Bear attacks, kills oil sands worker in Canada – CNN.com


(CNN) — A bear attacked and killed a worker at an oil sands plant in western Canada Wednesday, authorities said.

The attack took place at a Suncor Energy base plant, 200 miles north of Edmonton. The female employee was killed by a mature male black bear in the North Steepbank Mine, described as a “remote part of the main plant,” CNN network partner CTV reported.

“We are shocked by this very unusual incident and there are no words to express the tragedy of this situation,” said Mark Little, a Suncor executive vice president. “All of us need to focus on personal safety and I would urge everyone to be extremely vigilant in dealing with wildlife.”
