happy feet swims home

A tracking device had been attached to Happy Feet, the emperor penguin that had been washed up on the sandy beaches of NZ. It was released back into the Antarctica after treating it in the Wellington zoo for removal of sand and pebbles from its stomach. But the tracking device indicates that poor Happy Feet might have lost his bearings. It appears that he is heading back to NZ. Whether he is afraid of going back to the Antarctica or whether he found NZ to be a better place is not known but the experts are maintaining a close watch on his movements.
