Ferret stolen before being killed and dumped in park

Thursday October 8 2015

A FERRET was stolen from a garden before being sadly killed and dumped in a rubbish bag in Wombwell Park.

As well as Buster the ferret, a quad bike was also taken from the garden of a home on Roebuck Street in Wombwell.

Police were called to the home at around 7pm on Monday, October 5.

It is believed that theft took place at some time between 9am on Saturday, October 3 and Monday, October 5.

A police spokesperson said: "Anyone with information should call 101 or email enquiries@southyorks.pnn.police.uk quoting incident number 932 of 5 October 2015."

What!?? What kind of a low life imbecile would do such a thing. This world is full of oxygen stealing scum that need putting out of their misery. If I ever caught some knuckle dragging pond scum doing anything like this then they would regret ever stepping foot outside their house.

I hope you get somewhere with this, I really do, it is just horrible for your grandson and I can't imagine how you deal with it, it's hard enough when a family pet dies or gets ill. do you have to tell little kids these days there are people who just want to hurt or maim anything that lives and breathes, making innocent children be fearful of everything and everybody. It's just evil.

Sad and sick. Bad enough stealing a kid's quad bike or any other toy. But to kill his pet too, why???? Sick horrible people, to think they are walking round in the community. Or do they only come out after dark. Poor little lad will feel sorry his quad bike was nicked but might know it can be replaced. But the pet? Little lad will remember this as there's no explanation. How can you tell a child there is sick people off their heads who want to hurt people and living things.

The garden.I just can't get my head round it and what they have gained from doing it people round here know full well that that quad and ferret belongs to my 7 year old boy so why wud anyway one want to steal of a child in the first place never mind kill r pet is beyond me :(

They are a lot of sick ******** around.biput the is also thousands of good people.
When and you will catch these scum,they need naming and shaming it won't bring the little ferret back.But the scum will hAve to live in shame around Wombwell.

You can not hide a quad bike it will come to light very soon.When people learn what these scum life's have done to the ferret people will take.

Good luck catching them.

The more I think about this the more angry I get that such low life scum are in our community.

It won't change things but I'm more then happy to start a fund to but the little lad a couple of rabbits and a new ferret.

I'm more then happy to donate £20 towards the cost. If some one can suggest where we can send the cash to I'm sure more animal lovers that are horrified with the story will contribute how ever small amounts.Lets make the little fella smile again.

And also we have found the quad on Friday they had dumped it on a near by field gully stripped took everything of it and dumped the frame we now have the frame back at home and the police come on Friday and took finger prints so hopefully the scum will be caught can't have anything worth value or sentimental these days because of low life scum what doesn't know the meaning of going and earning and paying for things them selves .we all know why because my sons quad was a really good make and all the parts top notch and a very powerful fast engine well I hope the quad they put it on blows up whilst there on it .out poor little ferret was only 2 didnt get the chance to live the rest of his life grow old or die naturally no they had to pinch him and brutually kill him and dump him n leave it for me n my son to pick up the pieces.they don't even understand what they have done to us and the upset they have caused but karma comes round we have been told a few names and people seen on the quad before they have stripped it all and since someone ad been seen on another quad with all my sons parts on it and his plactics it won't be long till there caught and then we will have the last laugh xx

hi rob this is his grandma like his mum I would like to thank you for your kind and generous offer if this world had more people in it like you it would be a lot better place we have asked him about replacing the pets he has lost and he said he loved them so much he doesn't want to replace them like his mum said he does have some other pets we are keeping him occupied and on Monday he is going on holiday with my son for a week I hope you understand and please don't think we are ungrateful for your kind gesture it was a lovely and thoughtful thing which you were willing to do for him thank you once more with kind regards

Your more than welcome and appreciate your comments.Dont let the police fob you off hopefully they will be a digested as the rest of the community regarding this vile crime.

I'm sure they they can can get prints from the quad frame etc.
As Lynsey says these people are a danger to everyone of us and most important there is no room in our community for the scum involve.
Hope justice takes its course and when they catch them name and shame this was an evil act and I'm a big believer in what goes around comes around.
Hope the little fella has a good holiday.

We now live in a world that has some truly horrible people in it, so sad!

This is appalling, there should be stricter laws on animal cruelty and killings. Whoever did this needs to be locked up. This is how serial killers start with defenceless animals, I did already notice someone had mentioned this, but I do feel strongly about this. I haven’t felt safe walking my dog for a long time and it’s because of these type of sick morons. I feel so sorry for the little boy and his family, they must be heartbroken. I hope they will get justice, however nothing will undo what has happened. My heart goes out to them. x
