Rain is depressing for penguins in England, so they’re now on anti-depressants

SHARE Rain is depressing for penguins in England, so they’re now on anti-depressants

A pill can apparently cure anything, even if you’re a penguin living in England.

The weather across the pond has been so miserable of late —lots of rain and wind (terrible, we know) —that the penguins are feeling a bit down and showing signs of stress.

So the 12 penguins at Sealife Centre in Scarborough are getting a cure for what ails them in the form of anti-depressants.

‘They are just not used to this type of constant, prolonged bad weather that we are having,’ a spokeswoman for the centre told the Agence France-Presse. ‘They are under treatment for stress and we hope the tablets will have a calming effect on them.’

And of course, the penguins have no idea they’re popping pills.

Because they’re penguins.
