According to The Times Online, BLACK SABBATH bassist Geezer Butler has contributed £5,000 (approx. $8,700) towards a reward being offered for the return of Toga, the missing baby penguin.No trace of the three-month-old bird, said to be worth about £1,000, has been found since he went missing more than a week ago from the Amazon World zoo on the Isle of Wight. Kath Bright, the zoo's manager, pleaded for Toga's return Sunday (Dec. 25), adding that he could now be in the hands of an unscrupulous collector. What started as a £1,000 reward offered by the zoo has now multiplied. The total includes a £10,000 anonymous pledge. Bright said: "If Toga was stolen to order by a professional then of course there is a chance we will never hear anything of him again. It is a fact that rare and exotic animals are stolen to order, so why not Toga? Having said that, the reward money is so much now it might just change things and encourage someone to come forward."
