  • The gay penguins screamed at the straight couple when they suddenly reappeared

While the gay penguins may not have gotten away with their kidnapping plot, the budding parents were eventually given an abandoned egg by zookeepers to raise and care for.

Zookeepers in Denmark were left shocked by an unlikely kidnapping scenario earlier this week, with a gay penguin couple deciding to steal a chick from its neglectful parents.

So, she claims when they saw the chick being "neglected" by its parents, they chose to intervene and snatch it in hope of adopting it. "He may have not gone to care for the baby, and the couple thought, "Well, we'll take it"," she explained.

Animal keeper Sandie Hedegård Munck told Danish broadcaster DR the male penguin couple at Odense Zoo have been desperate to become parents.

"He may have left, leading the couple to think: 'That's a pity, we're snapping'".

Animal tenders had to intervene and give the chick back to its mom as the gay penguins tried to snatch it back as their own.

She added that she expected the straight parents to come over and get their child back, but their response to the situation was muted. While the chick's father didn't seem to notice, its mother began searching.

The chick was returned to its biological parents, a decision which the gay couple did not take well, struggling and fighting to reclaim the chick.

But don't fear - there's good news in store for the gay lovebirds.

She said while the mother desperately searched for her missing baby, the father was fairly nonchalant throughout the ordeal.

The male penguins engaged in the same mating rituals as straight penguin couples, and, after zoo staff saw them trying to hatch a rock, they were given a baby named Tango.
