A dog was stolen from a Dundee property before reportedly being tossed from a car.
Police are investigating after the Jack Russell-terrier cross went missing from a garden on the city’s Turriff Street on Sunday at about 4.30pm.
The canine had been secured by a lead to a pole, allowing it to roam.
Police say the dog’s owner found it “shaking and scared” on Americanmuir Road not long after it went missing from the garden.
A group of people who found the pooch claim they saw it being thrown from a black car.
The vehicle is described as either a BMW or Audi with tinted rear windows.
The dog was not injured.
