Protect Your Pet From Dog Nappers
The American Kennel Club reports that dog theft is not an unusual crime. State legislatures are taking the matter seriously. In Texas, the legislature is considering making pet theft a felony. California and Delaware have tried to regulate roadside pet sales, where stolen pets are often sold.
Some dog-nappers aim to collect a ransom. One California woman paid $10,000 for the return of a dog taken from her parked car. Other thieves want to make money selling the dog or may want to keep the pet for themselves.
