Men stole penguin from theme park
British pair fined after incident in Australia
TWO British tourists who broke into an Australian theme park and stole a penguin following a drunken night out have each been fined $1,000 (£637).
Rhys Owen Jones, 21, and Keri Mules, 20, appeared before magistrates in Brisbane and pleaded guilty to trespassing, stealing and keeping a protected animal, Australia’s Department of Justice said.
The two friends, from south Wales, were arrested after breaking into Sea World in Queensland.
The penguin, called Dirk, was later returned to his Sea World home unharmed.
