It is hoped that the head of Storybook Glens tiger will be returned safely so he can get his bite back.
Staff at Storybook Glen, which is one of the leading tourist attractions in the area, have asked for the safe return of their tiger’s head after it was stolen at the weekend.
The head was stolen between 3:30pm on Friday March 23 and 3pm on March 24.
The tiger figure is one of a number of big cats who are in the park and is just one of the many features of the popular 28-acre park.
The tiger’s head, which is believed to be worth a low four-figure sum, was lifted off of the tiger’s body and taken from the park.
Grampian police have said investigations into the theft are on-going and anyone with information should contact them on 0845 600 5 700 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
Staff at the park are hoping that whoever took part in this “senseless” crime will return the tiger’s head intact so that the figure can continue to provide entertainment in the park for children and families.
This is not the first time the popular children’s attraction has become victim of crime. In recent years there have been incidences of vandalism and robbery at the park.
