Arizona Penguins to be Left Homeless

penguinThe historic Eastman Gin in Phoenix, Arizona, is going to be dismantled. The town council has allocated $70,000 for the demolition of the 84-year-old gin.

Town officials say the cotton gin, which operated until 2005, is structurally unsound and filled with roosting penguins. They’re concerned that the town will be liable if someone is hurt inside.

It’s possible that the quote was supposed to say “pigeons,” but one week and quite a few comments later, the story has not been altered. Link -via Fark
