Purported purloined penguin positively a prank

All 15 of the African blackfooted penguins at the Georgia Aquarium are safely accounted for.

It's important to say that up front because, if you believe rumors circulating in the midstate, one of the little tuxedoed fellows was supposedly birdnapped in recent weeks by a student from West Laurens High School.

In fact, in a plot worthy of Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin from the Batman comics), the case of the purloined penguin has been floating around for the past decade or so from virtually any city with a zoo or an aquarium. It's a fish tale starring aquatic birds.
