Owner's Fears For Toga
Updated: 12:01, Thursday December 22, 2005



The owner of a zoo from which a baby penguin called Toga has been missing for several days believes it has died.

Derek Curtis was speaking after a man called GMTV to say he had stolen it and dumped it in a plastic bag at Portsmouth Dockyard.

The three-month-old, 1ft-high penguin is believed to have been stolen from Amazon World, Sandown, Isle of Wight, sometime during Saturday night.


Staff have warned that without the care of its parents the rare bird would die.

Mr Curtis said: "I am very pessimistic, I think we have lost it, it has been too long.

"I think that the person who phoned GMTV was genuine because we got his phone number and I spoke to him.

"He said he worked at the docks and dumped it on the side of the dock.

"The phone has now gone dead and he's not answering it."

A Hampshire police spokeswoman said the report of Toga being left at Portsmouth dockyard was just one of a number of leads.
how could some steal such a small and young creature?
