Happy Feet Is Free At Last

As told to the Penguin Post Happy Feet is free at last. The wayward emperor penguin dubbed “Happy Feet” is back in the ocean south of New Zealand. The penguin was released from the research vessel Tangaroa on Sunday morning about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of remote Campbell Island in water about 935 feet (285 meters) deep. Wellington Zoo veterinarian Lisa Argilla said Happy Feet needed some “gentle encouragement” to leave the purpose-built crate that had been his home on the boat for six days. He slid down a makeshift ramp backward and then took off.
