Seven dogs in Chicago were safely returned to their rightful owners after two men illegally broke into a minivan and drove it away from a pet daycare. The vehicle was discovered around 4 miles away from the daycare on Thursday, when a lady called the police after she saw a puppy sitting in it for at least 60 minutes in amid very frosty temperatures.
A witness told the law enforcement officials that one of the culprits pointed a firearm at him when he attempted to stop the minivan not long after it was stolen.
The Chicago police discharged the surveillance videos and photographs of the thieves in Wednesday’s burglary of belonging to canine daycare facility Urban Out Sitters.
This images depict the entering the van at the 800 block on West Superior Street. The Tribune composes the footage seems to be in contradiction with the story given by the holder of Urban Out Sitters, who told the newspaper that the criminals got the driver out of the van by threatening him with a weapon around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Different reports also say the thieves entered the opened and running vehicle on Superior Street, and the local police reported the culprits waved a weapon at people attempting to stop the robbery of the van.
The van was discovered Thursday morning on 21st and Wabash in MotorRow. Each one of the seven of the puppies in the van at the time of the burglary were still inside and later rejoined their owners.
But now there’s a lot of indignation regarding how this episode was taken care of by the daycare .Two of the puppy holders, Eileen and Doug Rodriguez said they won’t employ Urban Out Sitters for their doggie childcare any longer. Urban Out Sitters has not remarked on the faulty record they gave about the theft.
Mochi, Scarlet, Brad Pitt, Jadyn, Busy and Kayla are six of Chicago’s most fortunate pups today along with another unidentified dog.This event turned out well but it could have easily been a lot worse.
There are a lot of recommendations when the temperatures rise about how dogs should not be in an auto in hot weather and there are many stories about puppies being recovered from hot autos. But there is less talk about the risks of leaving a puppy in an auto while temperatures outside are very low. As indicated by the Chicago Tribune, the highest temperature Thursday was just 4 degrees and the low was a record-breaking -8. Even if an auto is quite warm when the engine works, if the motor is off it can get cold very fast.
