Last week, thousands of snow geese died in Montana after landing on "the acidic, metal-laden waters of an old open pit mine" to escape a snowstorm, the AP reported. Montana Resources, the mining company in charge of the toxic water, told the Billings Gazette that the agency won't release the exact number until mid-week, but it estimates about 10,000 birds perished on the evening of November 28.
