Gay Canadian Penguins

The Toronto Zoo will soon tear apart a natural pairing that has formed between two male African penguins named Buddy and Pedro.

The zoo is planning to force the “top-notch specimens” to separate so they can be matched with females [Ed. Note: Good luck with that.]. “It’s a complicated issue,” said Toronto zoo board chair Joe Torzsok. “But they seem to be in a loving relationship of some sort.”

Similar cases of gay penguins have been recorded in New York, Florida, Japan, and, most recently, in Germany, where a same-sex penguin couple adopted a chick that was rejected by its biological parents.
