Simple cruelties.

Earlier on this week, on the Island of Wight, someone decided to steal a baby penguin from the local zoo. Now, why would anyone decide to steal an infant penguin? Who knows; but, considering that only an infant's mother can feed it, and the penguin can only survive under very specific environmental conditions - it isn't the most well thought-out crime in human history.

One cannot easily picture someone tottering-by the penguin habitat, and saying to themselves, "Say now, I would dearly like to fetch that fine little specimen to care for as my own! I shall give it use of the pool, regurgitate into its mouth myself, perhaps install a miniature access door on the ice-box... It shall be the pride of the household!."

More likely, one can picture some boyo/boyeen stumbling by, half-in-the-bag, and saying to themselves, "Oooooo, 'm gettin' that for me girlie this Chris'mas! Woohoo!" - insert crashing and squawking here, as the penguin gets stuffed into a coat.
