Sunshine Coast owner of missing dog receives mysterious note claiming dog was run over

0 1

A Sunshine Coast dog-lover has received an unusual note from a stranger after her beloved dog went missing late last week.

Melissa Bunter, from Mountain Creek, was heartbroken when her little dog Gigi somehow managed to get out of the house on Thursday.

She had left for work that afternoon around 4.30pm, but when her husband got home later that night, he realised Gigi was gone.

Melissa said Gigi was very much an “indoors dog”, nervous around strangers and scared of the roads – so how or why she got out remains a mystery.

“She’s not one to follow me out,” Melissa told

“She’s scared of the road and she’s never allowed out there. I don’t know how she got out.”

The next day, the family walked around their neighbourhood, looking everywhere for their dog.

On Saturday, they did a letterbox drop and tacked posters up offering a $500 reward.

Odd note

Then, Melissa’s daughter found an odd, brief note in the letterbox.

“I accidentally ran over your dog,” the note read.

“She did not make it.

“I panicked. I’m sorry.”

The note ends with the drawing of a sad face.

“It’s sad, but we don’t feel any blame towards that person,” Melissa said.

“Accidents happen, and we’re so happy that they did get in touch with us.”

But now, Melissa wants to recover Gigi’s body and isn’t quite sure how, given the note was left anonymously.

“I have a cat and a chihuahua that also passed away, and we have them in urns in our family room, with their photos and dog collars, and they’re with us,” she said.

Is it a hoax?

She’s also not 100 per cent sure that the note is legitimate, saying it had “crossed her mind” that it could be a cruel hoax.

“All I have got to go on is that note,” she said.

“We live in suburbia and nobody has reported a dead dog on the road. And if anybody picked her up, she’s microchipped.

“I guess the most hurtful thing is thinking she’s in a rubbish bin somewhere.

“If she’s been taken, I hope she’s with somebody who absolutely adores her.”

Best outcome

Melissa said part of her hoped Gigi was still alive.

“It would be heaven. It would be the best outcome,” she said.

“But at the same time, if (this note) is genuine and this is a young person who panicked, I don’t want them to feel that they’ve done anything wrong.

“An accident is an accident.

“I just hope they can tell me where she is.”
