“Pooch Pirate” Steals 10-Pound Box of Treats From Family's Porch



A Texas resident shared security camera footage identifying the thief who stole a 10-pound package from their porch. Willy Mills, of Lubbock, posted the video showing a neighborhood dog — dubbed the “pooch pirate” — struggling to carry the heavy box, which Mills said contained Milk Bone dog treats. The dog only took the Milk Bone box, leaving behind several other packages. Neighborhood resident Bekah Elder identified the canine in the video as her Husky, Kit-Kat. She said Kit-Kat had escaped from her fenced-in yard about a quarter of a mile from the Mills home. Elder said Kit-Kat was found later in the day, but she had no idea that the dog had been getting into trouble until she saw the video. The dog showed no signs of having eaten anything and happily ate dinner that night. Elder plans to settle up with the Mills family over the bone theft.
