A small puppy was snatched by a crow from a backyard in Melbourne, Australia.
The woman, who owned the four-month-old Chihuahua named Fudge, had let him go outside for a bit when she heard the puppy cry for help. Heather Sinden claims that Fudge, who is small enough to fit in the palm of a person’s hand, was taken by a crow Wednesday afternoon.

Sinden, a cancer patient battling lung cancer, was given the puppy as a companion two months ago to help her cope with the disease. She is devastated by the loss of her canine friend. Her daughter, Pride, told Channel 7 News:
“She even said last week ‘I wouldn’t know what I’d do if I ever lost this little puppy’ — because it was her world, it kept her going. My mum is just hoping for miracle that she’s still alive.”
Her daughter revealed that Fudge was usually kept inside, but was being potty trained and let outside in the backyard that day. She said that her mother collapsed from shock and has been distraught by the tragic incident ever since it happened. Pride continued:
“She’s not coping at all to be honest. She can’t get the sounds of Fudge’s screams out of her mind. She heard Fudge screaming three times and she just panicked.”
The family is in search of the pup in the Timms Road area of Kilsyth in the north-east suburbs of Melbourne. They hope that she is still alive.
