    Why did they think of this being a good idea?

    Added draw for the public because of some tenuous link between Penguins(generally) and 'ice', and the current popularity penguins seem to be enjoying- as the avian equivalent of Meerkats? Having no experience of animals they were unaware of the potential stress involved .

    Exactly! It is almost as brilliant an idea as when London Zoo held late-night parties a few years ago and some fool apparently poured beer onto a tiger...maybe the zoo should stick to organizing events where people streak naked through the facility to raise money for charity. :p
