We all knew it was coming but it's still sad.
Buddy and Pedro, Toronto Zoo's "gay" penguins have been split up.
And Buddy is already mating with a female!
The zoo is claiming it was more of a bromance than a gay love affair and that it's natural for same sex penguins to form a social bond in the wild.
Well even if they weren't lovers it's still sad two penguins who were so close are now split up.
But the zoo says it was because they had to ensure the continuity of their species.
Well hopefully Buddy and Pedro finds some solace in their new mates, but theres always hope they'll be reunited in the future.
