The Dallas Morning News online site is still running the oily birds found in Texas story that it posted at 7:40 a.m.
But that story has since been debunked.
Yahoo! News filed a corrected report two-and-a-half hours ago.
A Morning News reader left a comment at the end of the article about an hour ago telling them that the story was disputed and described as a clerical error.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has been running the retracted version of the story since 10:30 this morning.
