Wow! This bird certainly took a wrong turn at Albuquerque, so to speak. A king penguin had somehow found its way to a beach near Cape St. Francis, South Africa. King penguins are usually only found in the sub-antarctic islands so you can imagine the journey it took. The rescue team took it in and made sure it was not harmed and didn’t pick up any local diseases. They’ll probably send it back to its natural habitat on the next ship going south toward Antarctica. I’m sure the penguin will feel much more comfortable with his own kind.
