Has Happy Feet Become Shark Bait?

I guess we won't be getting our World Cup tees!

Look away Happy Feet fans, the wayward Emperor penguin may have been eaten. His tracking device stopped working on Friday leading many to believe theĀ  directionally challenged bird may have became lunch for a shark. Some optimists, including scientists, think the tracking device may have simply fallen off. Either way, we will never really know the fate of the penguin, unless of course he ends up back on some New Zealand beach eating sand.

Psst It always ends in tears šŸ˜¦

Happy Feet Update

I know you are all wondering what happened to the wayward Emperor penguin which found its way onto a New Zealand beach after taking a wrong turn to Antarctica. Well, Happy Feet (so not original) is currently recovering from an operation to remove beach sand from its gut after it began eating it to try and keep cool. OK, not so bright Happy Feet thought the sand was friggin ice . Yep, not the sharpest tool in NZ the shed! Anywho, if the penguin survives they may consider returning it home. Hmm, but at the moment it is quite content to lie on a bed of party ice at the Wellington zoo.

One Misguided Emperor Penguin

A wayward emperor penguin who found himself eating sand on a New Zealand beach 3200km from Antarctica will have to find his own way home. Yep, New Zealand’s Department of Conservation are saying “NO” to returning the 10 month old penguin to his family, who are all sitting in the dark wondering where the hell is he! It’s swim or die. I hear they taste like chicken?

Psst Surely a zoo would take a one misguided emperor penguin?
