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.
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?)
