Penguin stolen from Dublin Zoo - 09-July-2010, 11:06

Early Thursday morning, up to three men scaled a 4 metre high perimeter fence at Dublin zoo and stole a 10-year-old Humboldt penguin, stuffing her in a bag and making their getaway in a Taxi.

Dublin zoo became aware of the missing penguin after a head-count revealed one missing. One of the staff members reported seeing a few individuals who got into a Taxi carrying a bag. When the Taxi driver was later questioned, he said the men told him that they had a rabbit in the bag.

The penguin was later discovered after a member of the public directed Garda (Irish police) to a street where the penguin was discovered wandering. The penguin was then returned to Dublin Zoo and where she was checked by a vet and reunited with her partner.

It has been over 10 years since any animal was stolen from the zoo.

My advice - if you're looking for a Tux, download one online, not from a Zoo.
