Missing huskies fears

The dogs’ owner Penny Bourne said she feared they may have been stolen to compete in dog fights.

The animals disappeared from her Barragup property on July 5.

‘I know someone has them,’ she said.

Ms Bourne reports seeing white vans parked near her house in Fiergerts Road in the past few months. She also noticed a white van driving slowly past her property less than an hour before she realised her dogs were gone.

‘I was inside for about half an hour to 45 minutes and when I went to bring them in, they were gone,’ Ms Bourne said.

‘The dogs had been in a fenced yard and Teaki was on a lead attached to a tree.

‘Teaki’s collar was found in a corner, it had never slipped off before and she would have hurt herself to do it.’

Ms Bourne said if the dogs had escaped, they would have dug under the fence, but there were no holes.

In a bizarre twist, Ms Bourne received a call the following night from someone claiming they had found her huskies. Ms Bourne was left devastated when the caller hung up.

To add to Ms Bourne’s torment, Odin’s collar was found undone on the side of the road near her property days later. Ms Bourne said the collar must have been planted because she had previously scoured the area.
