NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A New Orleans snack pie company says it’s honored to have an endangered penguin chick named “Hubig” after the company.
The chick is one of three that had to be helped out of their shells in March after pipping, or cracking the shells, in an incubator.
Simon Hubig Pie Co. spokesman Drew Ramsey said Tuesday that he hopes the penguin fans’ choice foretells parallel stories of rebirth for African black-footed penguins and the company.
The Audubon Aquarium says the name got 42 percent of 3,068 votes cast last week.
Ramsey recalls that penguin caretakers put on Hubig’s T-shirts for a feeding just after the company’s factory burned down a year ago.
The company has the city’s permission to rebuild on a site in the area where its original factory stood.
