Please help us find Piggie the echidna who was stolen from the Sanctuary on Saturday night!
Police are appealing for help from the public to return a stolen echidna safely to her home at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
Piggie, a female echidna, was stolen from her enclosure at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary when it was broken into by two men after 10pm on Saturday 1st August 2015.
The men cut away netting to gain access to an enclosure containing a number of echidnas.The first man attempted to remove three different echidnas from nesting boxes without success.
The second man has entered the enclosure and has been able to remove Piggie from her nesting box. The two men have then left, taking Piggie with them.
Concerns are held for Piggie’s welfare as echidnas require very specialised care and feeding.
Images have been released of two men who may be able to assist with the investigation. One man is wearing a mask but has a distinctive diamond shaped tattoo on his inner left arm. For more information see http://mypolice.qld.gov.au/goldcoast
Please spread the word and help us bring Piggie home to safety!
