A lost Humboldt penguin wandered into a house in the northern Peruvian town of Chimbote, 300 km north of Lima. After shuffling through the streets all night, the penguin made its way into Mary Tancheva’s kitchen, on the hunt for food. When Tancheva made her way to the kitchen she and her children were shocked to see the bird. She called the local police, who took the bird in their custody and it was later examined by government officials and then taken to the Chimbote zoo, There, veterinarians will examine the penguin and manage his return to the sea.
