A man drives to a gas station and has his tank filled up. While doing this
the clerk spots two penguins sitting on the back seat of the car. He asks
the driver, “What’s up with the penguins in the back seat?”

The man in the car says, “I found them. I asked myself what to do with
them but, I haven’t a clue.”

The clerk ponders a bit then says, “You should take them to the zoo.”

“Yeah, that’s a good idea,” says the man in the car and drives away.

The next day the man with the car is back at the same gas station. The
clerk sees the penguins are still in the back seat of the car.

“Hey, they’re still here! I thought you were going to take them to the zoo!”

“Oh, I did,” says the driver, “and we had a great time. Today I’m taking
them to the beach.”

Kelli, a 10-year-old female penguin, was kidnapped from Dublin Zoo this morning by three men. She was found several hours later on Rutland Street and was taken back to the Zoo by gardaí from Store Street. Gardaí are now hunting for the men involved.

Motive? Off – season college prankers? Criminals hoping to hold her for ransom? North Dublin brigade of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF)?

Media reports: BBC, RTE and Irish Independent.

It’s probably between the tiger cub suckling with the puppies or the cub drinking from a bottle at the end for the ‘make your mother go ‘awwwwwwww, bless’ moment’

Dublin Zoo, when it still had animals in it.
