Penguin escapes Tokyo aquarium

TOKYO, March 5 (UPI) — A penguin that escaped from Tokyo Sea Life Park was spotted floating at the mouth of the Old Edogawa River, officials said.

The bird flew the coop, so to speak, Saturday and was last seen in the river Sunday, The Japan Times reported.

“Since then, we don’t have any specific information about the penguin’s whereabouts,” said Takashi Sugino, an official of Tokyo Sea Life Park.

Sugino said officials are not sure exactly how the flightless aquatic bird, a 1-year-old Humboldt penguin, got loose.

“The penguin may have slipped through under the net and escaped,” he said.
