Uruguay

    Dead and oil-soaked penguins continue to wash ashore near Uruguay’s capital a week after fuel spilled during a boat collision. A least a dozen dead, oil-soaked penguins and a dead sea lion appeared June 11 at the Piriopolis beach outside Montevideo, where workers scraped oil from the sand. Richard Tessore of SOS Rescate Fauna Marina said June 11 that wildlife rescuers already are attending to 70 animals injured by contact with oil, and more continue to wash ashore. (AP)
