They should have played it cool.
A gay penguin couple waddled into trouble when they tried to “kidnap” a baby penguin from its heterosexual parents at Denmark’s Odense Zoo
The penguin debacle was caught on video and shared to the Osense Zoo’s Facebook page.
“Enjoy the case of the kidnapped penguin!” the video’s caption, translated from Danish said. “After hours, our zookeeper had to intervene to get the kid back to his parents.”
Zookeeper Sandie Hedgegard Munck told Danish broadcaster DR she knew something was wrong when she saw the only parent couple gone and two homosexual males standing by an unguarded baby.
“I think the female has been out to get her bath, and then it was the male’s turn to care for the kid,” but the male stepped away from his fatherly duties, Munck said.
It may have led the homosexual couple to think the chick had been abandoned.
Once the neglectful parents realized their chick was in between the gay couple’s legs, a fight broke out.
Munck had to get involved and return the chick back to the parents.
To make the gay penguin couple happy, Munck gave them an abandoned egg to care for.
