A puffin dramatically got its food stolen on Blue Planet last night and everyone was heartbroken

Too stressful for a Sunday night.

THE LEGENDARY DAVID Attenborough’s Blue Planet II is nearing its conclusion on BBC One – with the final episode airing next week.

If you haven’t been following, this is the kind of thing that goes down on a weekly basis:

Even though there are heartbreaking stories every week, all captured in glorious HD, last night’s episode featured an especially cruel moment for a puffin.

He’d travelled on a 60-mile round trip to get a fish for his family – only to have it snatched off him by an Arctic skua. And the camera was there to witness it

Ah, nature.

This puffin’s journey had everyone on the edge of their seats

And it was a tough reality to take in when his fish was robbed

We’d learned one good thing from the puffin’s story though

But there was something about *that* moment that had everyone heartbroken

Noooo.

We could relate to its plight

And cheered it on before the cruel ending

It made it home to the family, but didn’t have any food left to give.

Attenborough’s description made us think we knew the puffin personally

“Puffin’s Revenge” – due in cinemas in 2019

The start of the film will be this scene, and the puffin will eventually get his vengeance – in this life or the next
