Strange but true stories about Penguins

2) Giant Penguin Holds up Train Strange but true - Giant Penguin Tuxedo

Neuwied - Germany Train Udo Vergens, a German train driver, thought that he saw a man lying face down on the track.  What could Udo do?  What would you do?  Well Udo slammed on the train's emergency breaks.  Fortunately, the train came screeching to a halt barely 2 meters from the body.   When Udo got close, he could see that it was not a man in a tuxedo, but a giant toy penguin. Passengers were less impressed as their journey was disrupted because of Udo's emergency stop. A Neuwied police spokesman said: 'We are at a loss to explain the presence of this very large penguin. 'We would think you would notice if you lost something like this.'
