Ex-gay penguin contracts life-threatening disease

5 01 2010

Harry, the San Francisco penguin who first became famous for having a monogamous relationship with another male called Pepper and after two years moved on to female Linda, is severely sick. Since two weeks he has been coughing and has a small appetite. He contracted aspergillosis, a potentially fatal respiratory infection. Linda is by his side while Pepper is at a totally different area of the zoo after Linda and Harry attacked Pepper a while back. Maybe he needs his Pepper though to pepper him back to good health.
