A £32,000 stuffed Arctic Wolf was stolen in a Chelsea flat burglary earlier this month – detectives are now hunting the suspects.
The female victim had been out with a friend in Soho returning home at about 4am on August 3.
Both girls came back to the flat with three men they had met earlier in the evening, who then left at 5am.
Later in the morning, the victim discovered her stuffed Arctic wolf was missing.
It is about 6ft long and 3ft high, has an open ‘snarling’ mouth and yellow glass eyes and was bought six years from a taxidermy shop.
It has white fur with black speckles on its back, shoulders and ears.
All three suspects are white men believed to be in their early 20s.
Detective Sergeant Sean Lyons, said: “This is a unique item and I am appealing to anyone who may know the three suspects or have information about the stolen Arctic wolf to contact police.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact DS Sean Lyons at Kensington and Chelsea CID on 020 8246 0189 or police on 101.
