Three drunk men entered Australian Sea World illegally last weekend and swam with dolphins. After swimming, the men stole a penguin and videotaped it in the living room of their apartment.
One of them said he is sorry for the prank that got out of hand. The penguin was left near a canal by itself rather than returned to Sea World. Eventually it was found and returned to Sea World by others. The penguin thankfully was unharmed. However, the perpetrators will be charged with trespassing, and stealing a protected animal.
This story has a happy ending because no animals or people were harmed, but the behavior was inconsiderate and it all could have ended very badly.
