A Humboldt penguin stolen from a zoo in the city of Mannheim on Saturday has been found dead, German police say.

They say the bird's body was found near a car park and was identified by the number 53 on its wing.

Some German media reports say the penguin was decapitated.

The penguin's body is now being examined by veterinary surgeons, reports say, with police ruling out suggestions it was killed by a wild animal such as a fox or a bird of prey.

A full scale hunt for the perpetrator has begun.

Staff at the sanctuary from where the bird disappeared are devastated by news of its death, Spiegel online (in German) reported.

People are idiots. Somebody either thought it would be funny, that it could make them money if they tried to sell it, or that they were "freeing" the damn thing. Pointless. I hope they find whomever did it, if it was a person(s) who felt decapitating/torturing an animal was funny then that could be big red flag that they've done it to other animals and may do it to people.
