This poor little guy was found by two local residents out for a morning stroll.
The penguin was found in the Hawthorne Canal, just moments from the Flour Mill site. The two rescuers, Josh Pirini and Scott Martin, allegedly followed the penguin for three hours before he was able to be rescued.
The Sydney Morning Herald has footage of the penguin waddling around and generally having a good time in the canal.
The RSPCA took in the lost penguin, who apart from being a little underweight, was healthy enough to be returned to the wild.
In addition to Summer Hill’s local pet pony, the suburb is becoming quite the hub of eclectic animal discoveries.
