Kelli the Irish Penguin Found

The Penguin Post has learned that police in Dublin located a penguin stolen from a city zoo via tracking it by using a microchip and recovered from a city street. Investigators said the penguin was taken from the Dublin Zoo by a group of men at about 8 a.m. Thursday and was found on a city street a few hours later, The Irish Examiner reported Thursday. The penguin, a 10-year-old female Humboldt named Kelli, was unharmed by the ordeal, zoo officials said. “Dublin Zoo is naturally relieved that the animal is safe and unharmed and back in the zoo,” zoo officials said in a statement. “However, we wish to underline our annoyance about this incident. The welfare and health of all animals is our primary concern and this kind of incident is not frivolous and is certainly not something amusing.”
