    Penguins corralled on Texas highway

    Four others, exotic fish killed when zoo transport overturns



    Tuesday, August 8, 2006; Posted: 7:25 p.m. EDT (23:25 GMT)

    SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) -- Twenty-one penguins were rescued on a hot east Texas highway Tuesday after a truck carrying the wildlife to a temporary home south of Houston overturned, said a state trooper.

    Four penguins and some exotic fish were killed in the accident, including three penguins that were hit by p ing motorists, said Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Richard Buchanan.

    "The rest of the penguins kind of stayed together in the ditch," he said.

    The truck, also carrying an octopus that was uninjured, was bound for Moody Gardens, a tourist destination in Galveston, an hour south of Houston, a resort spokeswoman said.

    The wildlife was being transported to Texas from the Indianapolis Zoo while that zoo's ocean exhibit is being remodeled, said Jerri Hamacheck of Moody Gardens.

    The trooper said it was the oddest traffic accident he had ever handled.

    "We've worked several wrecks involving cows, horses, pigs, even fish, but this is the first where the live animals were penguins."

    Buchanan said he was glad the accident was not worse.

    "There was another truck full of snakes and alligators that was an hour ahead of them, so luckily we didn't have to deal with the alligators," Buchanan said.

    The first truck arrived safely in Galveston by late afternoon, Hamacheck said.

    I wonder if they will put up a memorial at the crash site?? Maybe that is what the family members were planning in the ditch.

    Houston in August? The penguins that survived probably thought they were in .

    As for the octopus, well, sometimes it helps to be a nonverterbrate.
