Men break into SeaWorld, steal penguin, brag about it on Facebook

WASHINGTON – It’s like a scene out of a movie — specifically “The Hangover.” Just replace a tiger with a penguin.

A group of three drunk friends allegedly broke into the Queensland, Australia SeaWorld where they made the park their own personal playgrounds and even took home an unusual souvenir — a 7-year-old penguin named Dirk.

The three men took cell phone video of their night, and bragged about it online.

ABC News reports the three men, ages 18, 20 and 21, will be in court next month on charges of trespassing, theft and unlawfully keeping a protected animal.
