Human Violence Spreading to Animal Population

(Due to technical difficulties, the video clip failed to activate and BizarreStuff was able only to publish a still photo. In the original video clip, the large penguin on the right, suddenly slaps the penguin to his left with his flipper, when that penguin tried to pass behind him, knocking the attacked penguin to the ice.)

January 18, 2009 Galapagos Islands In a report released by scientists studying the tranference of violent behavior between species, the scientists have noted a marked increase in animal violence toward members of their own species since 2001, when the first U.S. attacks were made on Afganistan. The violence peaked in 2003, with the U.S. bombing of Iraq and the Arab beheading of several Western journalists and some Chinese itinerants. The attached video clip depicts an incident of random, unprovoked violence among the penguin population, normally a placid and non violent species.

Shortly after this incident, the errant penguin was shot to death by the owner of a local tourist company. The man, who refused to give police his name, citing his constitutional right to remain silent, was led away by several burly men wearing white coats. According to a police spokeswoman, who spoke on condition of anorexia, the man was not expected to live until morning.


  1. Penguins enjoy an undeserved reputation as cute, cuddly creatures. Don't be deceived by the tuxedo knock-off threads, however. Beneath the cute costume lies the soul of an assasin. They are bullies and cowards, and attack baby seals, Great White sharks, and gorillas, without provocation. It wouldn't bother me if some government decided to place them on the extinct species list, the little bastards. Kill a penguin for the hell of it.

  2. The foregoing comment was written by a dangerously deranged person, who clearly has a deep-seated fear of penguins, probably the result of some cartoon s/he saw as a child. There simply is no documented instance of a penguin attacking a Great White shark, much less a gorilla, that lives hundreds of miles inland and hangs out in trees. Get a grip. The largest creature a solo penguin will attack is a beluga whale.
