Last Thursday - a man with a white van marked "animal control" with Vic plates, tried to abduct several Huskies claiming they needed to be "assessed".
Don't let anyone who won't id themselves put a pole with a snare loop anywhere near your dog. In fact I don't think I'd let anyone do that who didn't have police with and a proper warrant.
And then again - maybe not.
This just looks like the act of a straight up thief.
Anyone who finds the van ie a van with "animal control" and vic plates in SA - post on the facebook page and contact SA police.
