Stories like this make me so angry. So these two students who claim to be pro animal rights and fighting for animals, they steal a penguin from a zoo and release him into the wild. Because they’re against “animals kept in captivity”.
As the penguin has never been in the wild he will starve to death after about 2 weeks. Additionally his species is about to be labeled as critically endangered, so breeding pairs are essential - and he was part of one. Since he was stolen one of his chicks has died and his mate can’t leave the nest since they normally switch off. And on top of it all since the species is monogamous it will be extremely difficult if not impossible to pair her with another animal.
But yeah, way to go kids you definitely showed them.
