sh Whalen writes on photoblog.msnbc.msn.com: “A poor little featherless penguin born Aug. 17, 2011, was abandoned by its parents just days after its birth. An aquarium keeper said: ‘Its parents kicked it out from time to time, or even left it on the icy ground to let it die,’ according to Rex Features. Keepers at the aquarium decided that the sad baby penguin's lack of feathers and weak condition were due to difficulties digesting food and absorbing nutrition. Spokeswoman Wang Dan said: ‘In the beginning we tried to send it back to its parents, hoping they would still take care of it and help it grow stronger, but they neglected it and even kicked it out. We then decided to feed it by ourselves’. The keepers at LHT Pole Aquarium in China set up a penguin group to care for the youngster around the clock. After a month of hand-feeding, the little penguin was much stronger and, to the delight of keepers, even grew feathers. It was then successfully reintroduced to its family group.” Photos: Quirky News China via Rex USA
