PETA is planning to protest the appearance of SeaWorld’s celebrity penguins, Pete and Penny, at a party in NYC tonight. The animal rights group is claiming that the event’s flashing lights and loud music will frighten the penguin pair, and that the move is a blatant example of animal exploitation by SeaWorld. What do you think? Is PETA making an iceberg out of a molehill, or is a party full of people no place for two birds? Tell us in our poll.
