A Suncor Energy (SU -0.2%) employee was killed in a bear attack at its main oil sands operation near Fort McMurray in Alberta.

Alberta’s oil sands operations sit in prime bear and wildlife territory, although this area is defined by open pit mines rather than forest.

The death was SU's third employee fatality this year, the first two in work-related incidents.
