Court date for meerkat theft
THE two young adults charged in relation to stealing a baby meerkat from Perth Zoo last month are due in Perth Magistrates Court on October 24. Cannington Detectives and Kensington Police allege the meerkitten, which went missing the day before its intended public debut, was stolen by a 22-year-old man from Beverley. It will be further alleged in court that the man then gave the infant meerkat to a 23year-old Beverley woman. The man was charged with stealing and the woman was charged with receiving.
