Fleeting fame for poor Percy

Poor Percy was found washed up near Wellington's Shelly Bay this month. His leg was tangled in a fishing line and broken.

Percy was nursed back to health with fresh salmon, daily massages, and even fixed up with a female.

But unfortunately, Percy died just hours after being picked as the mascot for a penguin rescue project.

The circulation to his foot could not be recovered despite the massaging and had to be amputated. He then lost condition and had to be euthanized.
