Penguin Vic A-OK

The Penguin Post has learned that an oil-soaked penguin named Penguin Vic found on a Victorian beach near Melbourne, Australia has been given a clean-up and vets are optimistic it will make a full recovery.  The blue penguin was being tossed about by the dog but was saved on Sunday by a Middle Park resident and taken to the zoo for treatment. The bird has had several warm baths to help remove oil and restore natural waterproofing to its feathers. Melbourne Zoo associate vet Megan Curick is cautiously optimistic the penguin will make a full recovery.
