Our Penguin becomes a YouTube Star

A video of a lonely penguin at Fota Wildlife Park has become an internet sensation, gaining 77,000 YouTube hits. The clip was taken by blogger Sean McEntee and shows feeding time at the park.

The video shows all the penguins scramble towards one our of our wildlife wardens bringing their dinner except for one, which stands alone and looks confused by it all.

Speaking about the clip Head of Marketing for the park Stephen Ryan added "we are delighted that one of our penguins is gaining so much publicity thanks to this video by Sean, we are hoping that it goes over the 100,000 hits and who knows we may even see a sequel"
