Tokyo Bay's fugitive penguin is recaptured

A young penguin which escaped from a Tokyo aquarium has been caught after more than two months on the loose in the Japanese capital.

The Humboldt penguin scaled a wall and slipped though a fence at the Tokyo Sea Life Park in March.

It has since been spotted several times swimming in rivers running into Tokyo Bay, but had eluded keepers. The one-year-old escapee was finally recaptured on Thursday evening.
