The 50-barrels of Bunker Oil was a BP Product being loaded on a barge in Texas City to another location. So it's all BP's fault.
OMFG There's Pelicans Dying down there..... Now who does that sound like :P
"TEXAS CITY, Texas â€” Two oil-slicked pelicans are recovering at a wildlife rehabilitation center in Seabrook after being found Monday near where 50 barrels of bunker oil spilled into the Texas City ship channel during the weekend, officials confirmed.
It was unconfirmed if the birds were covered in oil from the spill at Dock 34 at the Port of Texas City or the oil source was from elsewhere.
Officials with the Unified Command initially said there were no impacts on wildlife from the spill.
One of the birds had a wing missing, an injury that is not believed to be related to the slick that forced the closure of the Port of Texas City and Texas City Dike on Friday and Saturday, Unified Command spokesman Henry de La Garza said. The bird also was malnourished."
