Three days later, there is still no new word after beloved Port Elizabeth penguin 'Buddy' was senselessly stolen after a break-in at Bayworld Museum, Oceanarium and Snake Park in Summerstrand. Humewood police are currently investigating a case of theft and on Friday appealed to the public for assistance with leads.
"According to the trainers at the marine park, they noticed on Thursday, 22 September 2016, that the penguin is missing while doing their routine medical check-ups on the animals," described police spokesperson, Colonel Priscilla Naidu.
"CCTV footage captured two unknown persons on the premises which raises the suspicion that 'Buddy' may have been stolen.
"The penguin is micro-chipped and also tagged (see picture)."
Anyone, who may know where ‘Buddy’ may be kept or can assist in tracing him, is asked to contact SAPS Humewood on 041 5045019 or Bayworld on 041 5840650 or email: email@example.com.
