Gay penguins 'kidnap' chick from 'bad' parents

A gay penguin couple “kidnaped” a baby while its parents waddled off for a swim, a zookeeper claims.

The drama unfolded in a zoo in Denmark, as the chick’s mother and father were having their daily paddle.

Animal keeper Sandie Hedegård Munck told Danish broadcaster DR the male penguin couple at Odense Zoo have been desperate to become parents.

So, she claims when they saw the chick being “neglected” by its parents, they decided to intervene and snatch it in hopes of adopting it.

Sandie said: "I could see that something was completely wrong. The parents disappeared and the kid was simply kidnaped.

"It was a pair of gay males who had snatched it and was stood with it.”
