Hoax penguin website fools shoppers

`A hoax American website claiming to sell live penguins that have been farmed in New Zealand has fooled some people into trying to buy the cold water birds.

Penguin Warehouse Inc has offered to ship seven types of penguins around the world, claiming their aim is to “dispel the myth that penguins do not make good house guests”, while also “ridding the house of pesky krill”, Christchurch’s The Press newspaper reported.

An American woman bought a large portable swimming pool, which she installed in her living-room ready for a penguin she dubbed Magellan.’
