Thieves have stolen the entire stock of cats and dogs - worth $200,000 - from a pet shop in Mongkok. Chan Chun-tat arrived at his shop on Victory Avenue on Monday morning to discover 12 dogs and four cats had been taken from their cages. Mr Chan, 40, who owns two other pet shops on the street, said some of the missing dogs were very expensive and he had planned to take them to competition later. 'The missing dogs are all imported from Australia. They are about 10 to 12 months old. The most expensive one was a bichon frise, which was worth as much as $30,000,' he said. Mr Chan added that he had also planned to take the four cats to a competition. 'They are each valued between $6,800 and $8,500,' he said. Also missing from the shop was $2,500 and some pet food. Mr Chan, who has run the three shops for more than 10 years, estimated that he had lost as much as $200,000 in stock. He said he found the locks and gates of his pet shops had been damaged over the past few days. 'I found they were being scratched, that someone tried to break in but failed. I had already informed the police,' Mr Chan said.
