Homewrecking Penguin Causes Utterly Savage Fight

Holy. Crap.

A National Geographic documentary has filmed the moment a penguin returned home to find his wife with another man.

What followed is one of the most savage and depressing encounters ever featured in a nature programme.

Confronted with the choice between her old partner and the new flame she rejects the returning husband.

So he fights for her. And what a fight.
