    I had no idea, but I feel sorry for the penguin. Surely PETA would have stopped it.

    Thanks for the story though. Excellent as usual :)

    Peter Schepis (my grandfather) was his handler. He still speaks fondly of the memories of taking the Penguin to games over the years… about 4 years! Not sure who fact checked this article but it’s not very accurate.
    The Penguin was never mistreated, in fact at times even had a seat at the dinner table before games!
    Sadly this photo has been published several times and never gives credit to Peter Schepis.
