The Search For Penguin 337 Mounts

The Penguin Post has learned that the dragnet for the runaway Japanese penguin #337 has widened as officials have asked birdwatchers on Tokyo’s rivers for help in tracking down the escapee, five days after it broke out of the aquarium.  Staff at Tokyo Sea Life Park said they believed the penguin was alive and well and somewhere in the Japanese capital coastal water after receiving reports the bird had been spotted successfully fed itself. “We haven’t given up hope,” Satoshi Toda of the Sea Life Park said yesterday “We have received information that indicates the penguin caught some fish and ate them, so we are hopeful that the bird is still alive. Our head penguin keeper has asked local birdwatchers to keep their eyes peeled in an area a bit wider than the neighborhood of our park,” he said, referring to two rivers that flank the Old Edogawa river.  Of course not just bird watchers, but any and all citizens have been asked to be on the lookout for the fugitive penguin.  More details to follow.
