You can't make this stuff up.

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.

I can hear those snipers now ... "Just who the hell did we piss off to land an assignment like this?"

Good news for the penguins though.

Talk about a beat-up. Them critters (cats and foxes) sure are mean though. I don't know how the term "sniper" comes into the equation. That is certainly journalistic licence!
