What sounds like a hilarious scene from the movie Hangover actually really happened last month in Australia:
Rhys Owen Jones, 21, and Keri Mules, 20, appeared before magistrates in Brisbane, Australia last week and pleaded guilty to trespassing, stealing and keeping a penguin.
The two young men from Wales were arrested after breaking into Sea World on Queensland’s Gold Coast during an alcohol-fueled escapade on April 14.
After drinking vodka at a beach party, they sneaked into the animal park and snatched the penguin, called Dirk, from an aquarium before waking up with the bird in their apartment the following day.
When they sobered up, Jones and Mules took photo and video footage of the animal before releasing it into a canal, but were arrested after a friend saw updates they had posted about their antics on Facebook and reported them to police.
