    Australia - Penguin deaths prompt sniper aid

    Penguin deaths prompt sniper aid

    Professional snipers have been brought in to guard a vulnerable colony of penguins in Australia.

    The deployment follows the mysterious deaths of nine of the flightless birds over the last two weeks.

    The mutilated bodies of the animals, known as fairy penguins, were found in a national park near Sydney harbour.

    The main suspects are dogs and foxes. At 40cm tall, the world's smallest penguin species is clearly no match for such aggressive enemies.

    To even up the fight, two snipers have been deployed as bodyguards.

    They have started night patrols and have instructions to do what it takes to protect these tiny creatures.

    They have joined a legion of volunteers, who have also been guarding the birds during the hours of darkness when they are most vulnerable to attack.

    Traps have been also been set in a concerted attempt to catch Sydney's penguin killers.

    ^ I assume these 'snipers' will probably be using air-rifles rather than some .50 caliber beasties

    Bruce: Look Bruce. There's somebody messing with the penguins. We were told to shoot anything messing with those Penguins
    Bruce: I'm sure she's wearing a Save the Penguins t-shirt, Bruce.
    Bruce: Doesn't matter she's messing with the penguins. Give me a wind reading Bruce.
