A 4 year old, brown / auburn Jack Russell answering to the name “Benny”, was stolen from outside a family home in the Crowenstown area on Sunday 17th May at approx 1.30pm. A dark coloured car was seen at the time. Fortunately, the little fella was located on Monday evening – in Carrick on Shannon. But how did he get there?
On the 21st April another family dog went missing and in the early hours of the 22nd, another attempted dog theft took place on the Delvin to Killucan road. Thankfully, this one escaped.
Farmers have also been alerted to the fact that there have been two recent incidents of sheep theft in the area.
PLEASE – watch your animals and if you spot any suspicious behaviour, report it immediately to Gardai in Delvin on 086 858 3049 or Mullingar on (044) 938 4000.
