Police are appealing after a dinosaur was made prematurely extinct at a public house in Wyke.
Sergeant Garry Shelton, from the Spen and Batley Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We believe the incident occurred around 7.30am on Saturday December 20 when a 5ft fibreglass Velociraptor figure was stolen from the beer garden of Harry’s Carvery on Whitehall Road, Wyke.
“It’s believed the same suspects were also responsible for stealing the tail of a larger 17ft Velociraptor.
“The beer garden is clearly seen from the busy road which runs between Halifax and Leeds and I would appeal for anyone who thinks they may have saurus something to contact police.
“We’ve had a bit of fun with the puns but this is a case of criminal damage and theft, which is not acceptable in any way, and it’s important those responsible are identified and the items returned to their rightful owners.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Spen and Batley Neighbourhood Policing Team via: 101 and by quoting crime reference number: 13140492990.
