Gay Penguins Steal Eggs from Straight Couples

Gay Penguins Steal Eggs from Straight penguinsA couple of gay penguins allegedly stole eggs from the "straight" birds in their desire to become "fathers". A keeper, from Polar Land in Harbin, China, said that gay penguins naturally have the urge to become fathers, in spite of their sexuality.

Below--Full Story

On their attempt to steal the eggs, the gay penguins placed stones at the feet of the straight parents as replacements of the said eggs.

But the act of stealing was noticed by the other penguins at the zoo, and they immediately drove the gay couple away. Because of this, the keepers decided to separate the gay penguins from other animals during hatching period.

A keeper at Harbin stated, "One of the responsibilities of being a male adult is looking after the eggs. Despite this being a biological impossibility for this couple, the natural desire is still there."

"It's not discrimination. We have to fence them separately, otherwise the whole group will be disturbed during hatching time."
