A 24-year old pet store manager in Nagasaki named Akira Honda was arrested for stealing a penguin from a zoo to pay off his debts. The bird he snatched was a Humboldt Penguin; they’re South American birds that grow to about 27 inches tall and 130lbs heavy. They’re not on the endangered species list yet, but there are only about 12,000 left in the wild, according to the Telegraph.
