Penguin killed in dog attack

A little blue penguin has died in Wellington Zoo after being attacked by a dog in Seaview.

The attack on Saturday morning involved a couple walking a large alsatian and a husky on Port Rd.

Witness Ann Rodgers confronted the pair and said the woman was attempting to hide the badly-injured bird under a bush. She said the man was severely reprimanding the dogs.

Mrs Rodgers contacted the SPCA, which took the penguin to the Native Bird Rescue Trust (NBRT), which in turn took it to Wellington Zoo.

Ms Rodgers, who describes herself as a dog lover, says she was disgusted by the woman's actions.
"She was clearly ashamed that her dog had done that." MORE>>
