Can you help find Buttercup?
THE four-year-old pug was stolen during a fun day for Mutts in Distress, which was held in New Barn Lane, Little Hallingbury, on Sunday, May 26. She was taken from her kennel just before 6.30pm.
Investigating officer PC James Hicks said: “The theft of any beloved pet from the family home, or in this case from a boarding kennel, is always extremely distressing.
“Pets are an integral and loved part of their family home.
“For them to be snatched away by callous thieves in these circumstances is both extremely cruel and wicked.
“I am keen to hear from anybody who saw Buttercup being taken, or saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area that day.
“No matter how insignificant you may think the information you have is, it may be the missing part of the jigsaw that helps us to reunite her with her owner.”
We are also asking vets to be vigilant. Buttercup is listed on the Microchip service PETPLUS and has been marked as stolen.
Anyone with information is asked to call PC Hicks in the Saffron Walden local policing team on 101, quoting crime reference 42/82588/19.
