  • "Why would someone go to the trouble and risk of stealing 2 dogs with the owner nearby only to let them go again a couple of minutes later?
    Could it be that the owner has read a lot more into this than actually happened?
    Perhaps the dog was chasing the car as it drove off. Maybe the car was totally unrelated and just nearby. Could it have been that the dogs chased off after a rabbit/squirrel/fox.
    What it comes down to is the dogs were out of sight... and more than a few feet if the owner was far enough away not to see them put in the van. Maybe this is a lesson learned and she will keep her dogs under proper control in future and a dog out of sight is not under control!"

DOG walkers are being urged to be vigilant after two pets are believed to have been pinched during a walk with their owner.

The owner lost sight of her black and white pedigree English pointers in King Charles Lane in Slad. She then heard one of the dogs bark and an engine running.

The barking became muffled and as the vehicle drove off barking became quieter.

One of the dogs was later found near King Charles Lane and the other was found on Steambridge Lane after 45 minutes of searching.

The incident happened on Sunday, April 6 between 3.30pm and 3.45pm.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on telephone number 101 quoting incident 269 of April 6.
