Rare species in peril as a result of leak; lawmakers lay blame

According to CNN, some of the early victims of the ongoing BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico include wildlife ranging from oyster beds to pelicans and delicate marshland. Among the wildlife casualties from the spill is the Louisiana pancake batfish, known as halieutichthys aculeatus.

The list of environmental victims mounts as the U.S. Government squarely lays the blame for the gulf's environmental catastrophe at the feet of British Petroleum.
