Woman says her bulldog was kidnapped
A disabled Washington woman said thieves stole her bulldog and are threatening via text messages to torture and kill him unless she sends them money and her prescription drugs.
Jennifer Thomas, of Woodland, relayed the bizarre story to KATU News, saying “People have a hard time even believing it. I can’t believe it! This kind of stuff doesn’t happen in our lives.”
She said she saw a man and a woman in her driveway just before she noticed her English bulldog, Jaggar, was missing 10 days ago.
Thomas said the people who took Jaggar knew she was in a wheelchair, and that she takes prescription painkillers.
Thomas read KATU News a text message she received that said: “If you don’t do exactly as you’re told the next few messages will be of your friend slowly getting tortured to death. And do us both a favor, keep this to yourself, no cops.”
Thomas has been in contact with Cowlitz County investigators about the theft.
