Zoo employee in 'adorable peril' in penguin enclosure

A penguin at Oregon Zoo made life a little bit harder for a zoo employee tasked with cleaning its penguinarium.

Footage shared to the Oregon Zoo Facebook page on September 10 shows how “penguinarium scrubbing is fraught with adorable peril,” as a member of staff attempts to clean the enclosure – as a Humboldt penguin swims and pecks around them.

According to Oregon Zoo, it possesses one of the largest collections of Humboldts in the United States.

The clip had earned over 41,000 views at the time of writing.
