Penguin's behaviour unsurprising at Hunstanton Sea Life Sanctuary, Lynn News letters

By Lynn News Reporter

Having taken my grandchildren there several times I have to say I think I have some sympathy for Barney’s attitude.

It looks to me like these little penguins are a big draw for the visitors, but I think if I was a penguin incarcerated in what looks like a pretty boring enclosure with little to do except eat fish and kick smelly sand around I think I’d probably lose my sense of humour and bite back.

These intelligent and sociable animals should not be used in this way and I’d suggest that someone should ask themselves why Barney has flipped.

He’s bored out of his mind and so give him his freedom or maybe you should think about giving him and his mates something more than fake fibreglass rocks and buildingsand to live on?
