Buddy and Pedro
There's been a bit of a flap about the Toronto zoo splitting up a pair of male African penguins in an effort to get them to breed with females and, like, perpetuate the species.
The zoo is promising to reunite the pair after breeding season.
No word at the moment on whether the penguins are Doing Their Duty or just pining away.
Apparently there has been a great outpouring of indignation at this separation and support for the penguin's relationship.
Hmm. Now if only this sentiment could be extended to gay humans...
