Sharks mascot kidnapped!

2012-06-20 14:29

Durban - The Sharks' mascot, Sharkie, last seen at Kings Park Stadium wearing the Sharks' black and white kit, has been kidnapped.

Officials and witnesses say four suspicious men were spotted at Kings Park Stadium on the eve of Sharkie’s disappearance. The return of Sharkie was assured with the delivery of a ransom payment, a message received late last night detailed.

Representatives of the Sharks team have convey their sentiments of concern, as Sharkie has always been a big feature at rugby games.

“He creates such an atmosphere and is dearly loved by fans. We only hope he’ll be safe and back in time for the game against Barney’s Army,” they pleaded.

Officials have requested the help of civilians in and around Durban to, “please keep your ears to the ground and help us raise this ransom by donating, we just want him back.”

To pledge your help, visit www.barneysarmy.co.za and donate to one of the three charities to build the funds to get Sharkie back safely.

    If this was serious I would donate to the kidnappers to keep him! Maybe I'm resistant to change but I seriously don't dig this mascot, old Sharkie rocked!!!

      Don't worry this is obviously not serious and some publicity stunt. But I agree I would also donate to keep him kidnapped, but that apply to the previous mascot too. The only good thing about the Shark mascot was to see it under the Bulls cheerleaders after being tackled by them. Hie, hie, that was a few years back, but still thought it funny.
