A LOCAL vet is appealing to the public to help find a bag stolen from the Lynwood Veterinary Clinic last month which was filled with the ashes of a golden retriever.
Clinic vet Evelyn Auger said the business was broken into early in the morning of December 17. A few items were taken from the reception area before a security guard arrived at the scene.
“The burglars must have been scared off by the alarm but before they left, they grabbed whatever they could from the bench near the entry point,” she said.
“Unfortunately this included a bag containing a simple brown felt bag which held the ashes of a beautiful and much loved 15-year-old golden retriever.
“We would like to appeal for the return of these ashes as they are of no value to the thieves, or if anyone has found it discarded somewhere we would really appreciate its return.”
Canning Vale Police acting Senior Sergeant Gailene Hamilton said officers found forensic evidence at the clinic and were hopeful they would find the offenders.
If you have found the ashes, contact the clinic on 9451 1646.
