Although gay Floridians can not adopt, gay male penguins are already doing it

According to the Chicago Sun-Times:

"A German zoo says a pair of gay male penguins are raising a chick from an egg abandoned by its parents.

Bremerhaven zoo veterinarian Joachim Schoene says the egg was placed in the male penguins' nest after its parents rejected it in late April. The males incubated it for some 30 days before it hatched and have continued to care for it.

Schoene said the male birds are one of three same-sex pairs among the zoo's 20 penguins."

I wonder if a Florida judge would force this penguin into the foster care system?
