Pooping penguin visits Kentucky Senate floor

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A penguin named Paula has pooped on the state Senate floor.

The African blackfooted penguin had been brought to the chamber Tuesday by Senate President Pro Tem Katie Stine.

The Southgate Republican was presenting her resolution to honor the Newport Aquarium for its stewardship of sea life and penguins when Senate President David Williams told her the bird had "just defecated on the floor."

With that business accomplished, an aquarium employee placed Paula on the upper part of Williams' desk while Stine finished presenting her resolution.
