Penguin Scandal and Intrigue at the SF Zoo

Some juicy gossip straight from the SF Zoo: same-sex penguin couple, Pepper and Harry, have called it quits. And the reason is Linda, a recently widowed penguin of questionable reputation. Sources close to Linda say she can't be alone.  But we just think she's kind of a slut. And so, apparently, does the zookeeper, David Brown. “To be completely anthropomorphizing, Linda seems conniving," Brown told the Examiner.  "She’s got her plan. I don’t think she was wanting to be a single girl for too long.”  Snap.

The drama will continue this summer, as molting season (and with it, emotions) kick into high gear. Will Harry and Linda keep going strong? Or will Pepper get back into the mix?  Stay tuned...
