Oh MY God! Sea Life Center in UK is giving their penguins anti-depressants. You’ll never guess why.

The Sea Life Center in England has started giving their captive penguins anti-depressants.  Seems the little guys are in low spirits.  The REASON for drugging these birds has nothing to do with the fact that they’re held prisoner, but because of — wait for it — CLIMATE CHANGE!  There you go.  Does the religion of AGW ever start getting rational?  Or do they just continue their dive into complete and total insanity?  

If you read the following article, it states very clearly that their free counterparts who live in Peru and Chile are not suffering from the horrible effects of Climate Change, but the ones in captivity are so seriously depressed because of the rain in the UK, that they need to be drugged.  

We have stopped orbiting the Planet of Insanity and are heading straight towards unadulterated lunacy.  I say it’s time we round up all of the Global Warming religious zealots and colonize them on Antarctica, where they can wail and moan and gnash their teeth, while the rest of the world regains some common sense and rationality. — DQ

A number of Humboldt penguins at the Sea Life Center in England are being given antidepressants to pick up their spirits after weeks of heavy winds and rain.

The harsh winter can alter moods, upsetting not just humans but also the Humboldt penguins at the Sea Life Center in Scarborough, England. Hoping to lift their spirits and boost their immune systems, the penguins’ trainers started giving them antidepressants, according to The Guardian. 

Although extreme weather hardly dents the spirits of wild Humboldt penguins where they live on the coast of Peru and Chile, it gradually made the lives of those living at the Sea Life Center miserable, as the Center has recently been battered by constant heavy rain and wind. “After the first week out, [the] birds were just a bit subdued,” curator Lyndsey Crawford told the Guzelian news agency, according to The Guardian, “but after over a month now, they are thoroughly fed-up and miserable, much like the rest of us.”

The weather can impact penguins in captivity in several ways, and sometimes with severe consequences. They can become depressed and stressed, causing their bodies’ natural defenses to weaken. Three years ago, the penguins became so stressed and frightened from being chased by a trespasser that their reproductive cycles were disrupted.  Continue reading here….

    I think medication for complete and irreversible psychosis is warranted. For the people, not the penguins. Now, I believe, I have heard it all…..How can anyone take these idiots even a little bit seriously?

      I was just stunned when I read the article. I was trying to explain it to Mr. Quixote and the words wouldn’t even come out of my mouth. I finally said, “You’re just going to have to wait till this is posted and read it yourself.”

      Unbelievable that we have lunatics like this walking among us.

    It’s animal cruelty. Sure the penquins are “depressed”. They are stuck in a zoo. Take them to a zoo in Chile or Pero and stop feeding them drugs. Where’s PETA when they could actually be useful? (Is this a sign of the desperation of the climate change people, willing to drug penguins for the cause????)
