The bizarre theft happened at around 8.30am before the zoo opened to the public. Three men climbed the perimeter fence and entered the penguin habitat, capturing a 10-year-old female named Kelli.  They put her into a sack and left the zoo where they hailed a taxi passing through the Phoenix Park. They told the driver they had a rabbit with them and he dropped them in Dublin's north inner city.
