Gay penguin couple trying to start a family

A couple of gay penguins at Polar Land in Harbin, northeast China, are attempting to steal eggs from straight birds in an effort to become "fathers", it has been reported.

The two penguins have started placing stones at the feet of parents before waddling away with their eggs, in a bid to hide their theft.

But the deception has been noticed by other penguins at the zoo, who have ostracised the gay couple from their group. Now keepers have decided to segregate the pair of three-year-old male birds to avoid disrupting the rest of the community during the hatching season.

"It's not discrimination. We have to fence them separately, otherwise the whole group will be disturbed during hatching time," a zoo a keeper said.
