    Dogs were worth $2500 each per story. That's 3 months of Ground wages.

    My next door neighbor has several weenie dogs and they got out one day. I walked outside to see a guy walking down the street carrying one under each arm and around the corner he went. Neighbor was home. I told him and he took off running, came back with his dogs. The guy worked for the light company and said he was "taking them back to where he thought they lived" A thief is a thief, no matter what they steal.

    They were dropped off at a vets office. He obviously was just trying to get them off the street so they didn't get hurt. I think it's ridiculous that the news made it out to be anything else.

    This happened not too far from my house, and the local news has had it on for several days in a row. The guy had 6 cameras around his house. The driver in question had to work hard to keep these 2 dogs corralled. He put 1 in his van, went back to get the other one, and the first one jumped out. The latest today was FEDEX stated that the driver was suspended pending an investigation. Someone did find the dogs wandering the roads together, and it was only a short distance from the FEDEX building.

    I'll bet the dogs were headed to the station to tell on the driver.

    From the video it seems quite feasible that the driver thought the dogs were lost or strays and didn't want to leave them out in the elements. Why drop them off at a vet otherwise?

    If he was stealing them, there is a special place in hell for those who mistreat (or steal) animals.

    The story just doesn't make sense in some ways. If he spent that much time at the owner's house grabbing the dogs that is very bad but if he saw them loose and took them to the vet its completely different. It does sound like he was a scumbag trying to steal the dogs though. Why would the owner have 6 cameras recording the outside of his house? A bit overkill maybe?

    That explains the dog logo on the home delivery trucks doesn't it?

    The dogs were initially at the owners front door when the driver first arrived. The driver wasn't the same one who brought the dogs to the vet. It was a random person who came across them. The vet had seen the video on TV. It hit the news the same day it happened. The part of town where the owner lived has had a rash of home invasion robberies. Cameras are more and more common as the price of them drops.

    Maybe he is the part-time animal control officer in town and thought the logo on the truck added some additional credibility.
