Thieves steal penguin from Dublin Zoo

A penguin was found wandering a Dublin street yesterday after being stolen from the zoo in a suspected prank.

The female penguin was kidnapped by a gang of men at about 8am from the Phoenix Park and discovered several hours later a few miles away in the north inner city.

It is believed the men broke into the zoo, took the penguin and made off in a taxi.

Gardai said officers were alerted to the theft yesterday morning.

In a statement, Dublin Zoo described the theft as an annoyance and “not amusing”.
