Culture on the Cheap
Have You Seen Samantha?
Yesterday afternoon I received a rather disquieting email from a woman in Windsor Terrace named Pam. She writes:
My apartment was broken into Wednesday afternoon and my beloved Maltese, Samantha was stolen. The thief came in through the fire escape and left through the front door. Although several bags and boxes throughout the apartment had been rifled through, the only thing missing is my dog and her carrier. Reports have been filed with the police, Animal Control, ASPCA and the Humane Society.
I’ve attached a flyer with her photo and pertinent information. Any help you can provide with posting this info would be greatly appreciated. If you have additional questions, my mobile number is 917-627-0292.
Thanks so much.
In my 30-odd years I have seen some really strange shit, but I have never heard of someone burglarizing an apartment to steal a dog. It just serves to prove two things I have suspected all along:
- Human beings are pretty fucked up creatures.
- Truth is infinitely stranger than fiction.
If anyone has seen Samantha please contact Pam at the above telephone number.
UPDATE 1/31/08: Per The Gowanus Lounge, Samantha has been returned to her owner!
