UPI News Service, 08/17/2020
A penguin escaped from its home on a British farm and was spotted by police when it came "plodding up a village street."
Broxtowe North Police said the Humbolt penguin had escaped from its enclosure on a farm early Sunday morning when officers on patrol in Strelly, near Nottingham, spotted it "plodding up a village street."
Police nicknamed the "friendly bird" Po-Po and questioned him "on what he was doing walking down the middle of a road."
Officers determined the penguin had escaped from a farm about 1 mile away. The bird was safely returned to his owner's home.
