Penguin Love On The Rocks

The Penguin Post has learned that it appears Canada’s beloved gay penguin couple has split up. Buddy and Pedro made international headlines earlier this year when the Toronto Zoo had to separate them to encourage them to mate with female penguins. Buddy succeeded, but Pedro didn’t seem to have any luck, the Guardian reported. In the midst of that, the formerly close penguins began fighting across their respective nests, the Toronto Star reported. The injuries could have been quite serious if there wasn’t mesh netting separating the cages, the newspaper reported. “It’s a common male trait. They set territory around a nest,” said Tom Mason, a zoo official. While there was no actual proof that the penguins were gay, they drew worldwide fans and even a petition on Change.org asking the zoo not to separate them. Now, their fans seem to have trouble accepting the star-crossed love may have fizzled on it’s own. On their fake Twitter accounts, the penguins denied they were separating. “No TV in here. Probably just more awful rumors about @BuddyPenguin anyway,” Pedro the Penguin tweeted.

Buddy and Pedro seem to have gone their separate ways.
