'Naughty penguin' named and shamed for stealing fish Timmy the penguin

An aquarium in New Zealand shamed a penguin by giving it the title of 'Naughty penguin of the month'.

Penguin Timmy bagged the title after he 'stole fish' and 'pushed another penguin over'.

Here the proof...

Every month our penguin keepers of the National Aquarium of New Zealand tell the world about our naughtiest and best behaved penguins! This was the list for June.

The official Facebook page stated, " Lets talk about Timmy, our naughty penguin of the month. We love Timmy, however he's a regular offender of stealing fish and pushing other penguins out the way while flicking up sand in the process! Timmy was found injured on a beach in Hawke’s Bay unable to walk. But with treatment and visits from his own chiropractor he is able to walk again, although a bit wobbly at times. He loves to swim and you can see him in action during feeding time every day at 9.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm.
