Gay penguins split up

Two gay Canadian penguins have split up after one mated with a female.

Toronto zoo keepers have confirmed Buddy and Pedro have broken up after Buddy cheated on his lover with a female aquatic bird.

The homosexual pair were separated last month when zoo keepers became concerned they were not mating with any female penguins.

African penguins are an endangered species so the couple were encouraged to reproduce.

Buddy, 21, previously had a female partner for 10 years and produced chicks, but Pedro, 10, has never produced offspring.
