Penguin stolen from zoo is found dead

‘Worst possible outcome’ for penguin stolen from zoo

The worst possible outcome has materialized for a penguin who was stolen from a zoo in Mannheim, Germany, over the weekend. According to the Daily Mail, the penguin, known by its identification number “53,” was found decapitated on a fence in a parking lot not far from the zoo.

The local authorities have opened an investigation into the sad situation – hoping to find whoever took the Humboldt Penguin, and who is responsible for the animal’s death. It is unclear if the bird was killed where the body was found, or elsewhere – officials are hoping that a witness will come forward with more information.

The Humboldt penguin is a South American Penguin who lives along the Pacific coast. The flightless seabird bird is considered to be a “vulnerable” breed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Number “53” resided at the zoo with approximately 20 other penguins – zoo keepers noticed that the bird was missing during a headcount on Saturday.

    Les gens sont complètement pourris de l’intérieur pour tuer un animal innocent, il faut absolument exterminer toute cette merde pour sauver un peu de ce monde. Ce fumier doit être attrapé rapidement et condamnés à mort.

    First of all how did someone manage to steal a penguin with no body noticing? That sounds like this zoo is not very good with maintaining security for the safety of the animals! Who ever did this is a sick bastard! They need to be punished severely for this crime! That poor bird suffered horribly!

      I was wondering what about the enclosure that these birds should have had. How did this POS even get to take a penguin out of it’s pen? Something is amiss about this zoo’s protective measures.
