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.
