Domino sparrow site hacked

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- The sparrow that accidentally toppled 23,000 dominoes can't get any respect even in death -- hackers defaced the Dutch Web site commemorating it.

The site was established earlier this week after the co-called "Domino D-Day sparrow" knocked over 23,000 of the 4.3 million dominoes set up in a bid to break the domino-toppling record. People trying to protect the domino setup said they tried to capture the bird, but couldn't, so it had to be shot.

It was to be honored with the Web site, but hackers managed to put porn on the site Thursday, Expatica reported.

The animal rights group Dierenbescherming is investigating whether shooting the bird was legal.
