Vicious Battle Between Penguins Over ‘Cheating Wife’

Everyone hates a homewrecker.

It’s everyone’s worst nightmare, you pop out and when you come back, your bird is with some other guy (or penguin in this case).

In an exchange more cutting than Ed Sheeran’s Don’t to Ellie Goulding, these two male penguin love rivals hash it out in a bloody battle after the wife went off with an intruder.

Credit to the husband penguin, he doesn’t give up on his love, and fights to the brutal end, even when the unfaithful mother of his children chooses the homewrecker.

The video shows a penguin colony of over 250,000 which has gathered to fix their nests and breed…so why the fuss over this one bird?!

The video shows a viscious encounter between the males in tuxedos where they use their flippers ‘like baseball bats to club each other, delivering up to eight blows a second’.

The video has gone viral with over 120k likes – I reckon lots of people can relate.

I feel pretty bad for the husband in this, but the narrator has no mercy, saying:

He makes one last plea to the female, but she’s got no time for losers

Why do bad things happened to good penguins?!
