Two robbers, armed with machetes, broke into a man’s home in Harpurhey, United Kingdom on Saturday and stole a litter of five-week old puppies. The mother dog, trying to protect her babies, was hit on the head with a machete by one of the men – leaving a deep injury to the dog’s face.
According to the Independent, police in Manchester stated the two robbers attacked the victim after following him into his home and slashed the man with their machetes. The thieves then stole cash, keys and a phone. When they spotted the Staffordshire cross puppies and their mother Zena, they decided to steal the puppies. Zena growled at the men and while trying to defend her puppies was seriously slashed in the face.
The Greater Manchester Police are asking for the public’s help, fearing the puppies are too young to be separated from their mother.
“… This was an incredibly callous robbery, where the offenders showed absolutely no regard for the safety of anyone, human or animal, who was present at the time,” stated Detective Constable Nick Kershaw. “Please help us return these puppies and reunited them with their sad mother, Zena, who has been left devastated.”
The two suspects are described as black with thin builds and believed to be in their 20s. Both wore dark clothing and hoodies. One of the men is believed to be about 6’3”; his partner is shorter and wore a plain black covering over his face.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 0161 856 3985 or CrimeStoppers at 0800 555 111.
Help Zena find her puppies, and help bring these heartless creeps to justice.
