Seven Penguins Die At Troubled Calgary Zoo In Suspected Mass Panic


Employees at the Calgary Zoo made a horrifying discovery Thursday morning: seven dead Humboldt penguins, all apparently drowned in a 3-feet-deep pool.

According to the zoo, the birds were in a holding area.

Jamie Dorgan, Director Animal Care at the Calgary Zoo said they have launched a full investigation to find out what caused these penguins to die, and "prevent further incidents like this from happening again". But, really, we're speculating at this point.

The penguins ranged in age from eight months to seven years old.

In 2013, a handful of penguins, including a three-year-old Humboldt named Junto, were killed after a deadly bacterial infection swept through the enclosure. "We are really digging to find evidence", Dorgan told The Calgary Herald about what happened to the seven penguins.

"If one or two birds were in a bit of panic, everyone could have just got in the mix and perhaps they were getting worked up in the pool". "You know, all the animals at the zoo are family members for our staff". In February, an otter drown after getting tangled in a pair of trousers given to it as a present by a zookeeper.
