Stressed out penguins in stormy England given anti-depressants
LONDON (AFP) - After weeks of rain and wind in England, miserable penguins at a marine centre in England are being fed anti-depressants to cheer them up.
The 12 Humboldt penguins at the Sealife Centre in Scarborough, north-east England, were showing signs of stress as they shivered through one of the wettest winters on record.
So it was decided to slip pills into the fish they are fed.
Although the penguins are accustomed to cold weather in their natural habitat of Peru and Chile, the constant rain has come as a shock to them.
