1950's

an escapee penguin

By Yvonne Owen

my Dad and I were on our way home and walking out of the zoo along the road and lots of people were laughing and we wondered why and trotting (sorry waddling) behind us was a small or baby penguin, to cut a long story short we had to go back to the zoo so that he followed us and tell them about our shadow. Always loved penguins best since. I cannot imagine anything like this would happen today just glad it wasn't a lion !!!!!
