Border-ing on bizarre: Kilkenny farmer’s mutt swiped and swapped with doggy double
A Kilkenny farmer was left fuming and bewildered when he discovered his trusted sheepdog had been stolen but the thieves left a similar dog in its place.
The bizarre incident happened on a farm at Pollagh, Skeoughvosteen near Goresbridge between 10.30am and 12.30am on Thursday, February 13.
The farmer had left his dog, a Border Collie, with his cattlebox while he attended to some work. When he returned to the cattlebox he saw a dog which was a Border Collie on his cattlebox, but immediately realised it was not his trusted companion.
There was no sign of the farmers dog.
Anyone who may have information or who may have seen anything unusual in the Skeoughvosteen area on Thursday morning is asked to contact the gardai at Goresbridge on 059 977 5202.
