Is It Hard To Steal A Penguin?

An 18-inch baby penguin was stolen from the Amazon World zoo in southern England on Dec. 17. "Toga" was still missing as of Friday; the zoo's manager is offering a $13,000 reward for his safe return. How hard is it to steal an animal from the zoo?

In general, small or baby animals are the most vulnerable, since they're easy to conceal and don't put up much of a fight. An adult penguin, for example, can give you a vicious peck.

Birds do make for tempting targets, though, since they're not too big and can be worth a lot of money. (An exotic macaw could fetch more than $10,000.) Outdoor avian enclosures are also less likely to be rigged up with alarms or security cameras than indoor habitats. In 1989, the San Diego Zoo lost a milky eagle owl when thieves cut a 2-foot hole in its wire cage and an African eagle when thieves broke through the door at the back of its cage.
