Hatton Country Word animal park in Warwickshire, England is about to face something of a population boom, after a male guinea pig escaped the male-only enclosure, found his way to the female pen, and made The Rounds.
Staff is unsure exactly how the little horndog, aptly nicknamed Randy, actually infiltrated the female-only enclosure. While some think he managed to escape himself, it could be as simple as a child placing him in the wrong pen after holding him. They are also unsure how long Randy had been in with the females, though they suspect several weeks—enough for him to knock up the entire female population. Via ITV, Manager Richard Craddock estimates:
"We believe that the newly-named Randy could have impregnated up to 100 female guinea pigs, which have litters of about four, so if you do the maths we could be expecting quite a baby boom.
Way to throw off the genetic pool there, RANDY. JEEZ. Hatton Country World is now working to expand the guinea pig pen to make way for the (potentially) 400 mini-Randys that are about to be running around.
And this is why we can't have nice things, kids.
