Penguins leaving town soon

  • Print

Quick! Sunday is your last chance to see the penguins at Assiniboine Park Zoo before they leave.

The three African black-footed penguins, named Tubbs, Sal, and Mooshu, will be moving on to a new zoological facility, zoo officials said.

More than 325,000 people have visited the temporary exhibit since May, which is a 56% increase over last year’s numbers.

"The penguins have been a great addition to the Zoo and our visitors have really enjoyed them over the last six months," said director of zoological operations Dr. Brian Joseph in a release. "There are going to be many more exciting things happening here in the near future and we’re looking forward to sharing all of them with the community."

The penguin exhibit was extended by over a month due to popularity, but will be closing Oct. 27 at 4 p.m.
