Snipers to Protect Fairy Penguins

Sydney’s colony of fairy penguins will now be protected by snipers. Nine members of the 120-member colony at Quarantine beach have recently perished after being mauled by what authorities believe are either dogs or foxes (DNA tests are still underway). The parks service vows that the snipers will stay as long as necessary to protect the little penguins. You can read the full story in the Guardian.
