Bird of Century: Pūteketeke wins NZ poll after campaign by John Oliver

Such was the intensity of the contest than some were moved to commit voter fraud. One supporter of the eastern rockhopper penguin – which Mr Oliver dismissed as a “hipster penguin” – cast 40,000 votes for the bird. Another person, from Pennsylvania in the US, cast 3,403 votes – with one arriving every three seconds. Neither were included in the final count.
