Penguin stolen from Dublin Zoo found on street

RTE – Thursday, 8 July 2010 14:15

Gardaí are searching for three men who stole a penguin from Dublin Zoo this morning.

The penguin was bundled into a bag and taken away in a taxi at around 11am.

The men told the taxi driver it was a rabbit and they were dropped off in Dublin’s north inner city.

The penguin was later found on the street and was taken to Store Street Garda Station.

It has been safely returned to Dublin Zoo.

(You couldn’t write this stuff – what do you say to the Garda when you turn up at Store Street with a penguin under your arm?)
