Animal Instincts

If you were going to rob someone and needed to distract them, how would you do it?

Well, you could use your animal instincts, and here we have two tales to stun and delight.

You've all heard of cat burglars, but have you ever heard of a dog burglar?

The Pakistan Daily Times reports a very unique burglary in Stockton-on-Tees, where an elderly woman was robbed whilst the accomplice pretended to be a dog.

The thieves broke into the house of a 90-year-old woman and her 93-year-old brother and stunned the pair when one of the thieves "dropped to his knees and started to bark like a dog and crawl around on all fours", and the other thief snatched a purse before they both ran off.

Do you think they take turns in being the dog at each burglary they carry out?

The second story comes from Ananova, which reports the story of a Polish woman who takes the lead with her stray husband by chaining him up in a dog kennel because she was fed up with him coming home drunk.

Sick of seeing their money being wasted on vodka, Helena Bukarowicza literally put 75-year-old Zdzislawa in the dog house. Deprived of his usual creature comforts, Zdzislawa slept on an old blanket, chained in his kennel, and ate dog food and water from a bowl, yet surviving the inhumane temperatures of -20 degrees at his home in Scinawa.

He lived the dog's life for almost three weeks and was only freed when friends noticed he hadn't been at his bar stool for several days, and called the police.

The moral of these two stories are: if you sniff around enough, you're bound to come up with a few tales.
