Authorities say at least four Norwegian teenagers are suspected of stealing a Humboldt penguin egg and three newly-hatched penguin babies from an animal park in western Norway.
A police spokesman said that seven people were seen on a security video climbing over a fence late Wednesday to enter an enclosure where the three-week-old babies lived at the Atlanterhavsparken saltwater aquarium outside Aalesund.
Park manager Tor Erik Standal told The Associated Press he feared the penguin babies were dead by now because they "desperately need their parents to survive."
On Friday four students turned themselves in to the authorities, confessing their trespassing but denying any theft. They face fines or up to one year in prison if convicted.
