Even the grimmest of times deserve a grin, and the Odense Zoo in Denmark has given us one today with this video of penguins attempting to escape their keeper.
It's a better moment for the zoo than its recent publicity, which was largely negative. In October, the Zoo, as an educational event, dissected a young lion in front of an audience of schoolchildren. For more, from TheLocal.dk, click HERE.
The penguin caper mirrors a similar escape attempt in the cartoon feature Madagascar, though the real penguins lacked the walkie-talkies and other equipment of their cartoon counterparts. And, the real penguins gave themselves away by leaving footprints in the snow. When zoo employees cornered them at the end of a hallway, they spun around and ran the other way. Must be seen!
