Uber Eats motorist supposedly stealing Patrick Lewis’s cat.
An Uber Eats motorist at California was supposedly captured on tape attacking a family’s cat from the front lawn of the home last week, placing the feline at a brown paper bag from the backseat of her white automobile before falling off a food delivery arrangement to the family’s neighbor, multiple neighborhood news outlets reported Sunday.
Studio City resident Patrick Lewis, that found the then-kitten 18 decades back at Brooklyn and telephoned her Hog, informed CBSLA that he recognized his pet was missing Tuesday and immediately started to search for her, requesting his neighbors if they’d seen anything uncommon. Among Lewis’s neighbors came forward and advised him that they’d seen a woman they did not understand pick the cat up, even though a second neighbor advised him their safety surveillance camera had captured the cat theft on film.
“I’ve actually just watched it one time. “For me, it’s dreadful to see. That’s my little girl being banged quite much. That’s what it seemed like me”
A third neighbor who watched the footage was able to spot the woman as the Uber Eats motorist who had delivered her meals a couple of days prior. That neighbor was in possession of this receipt from the delivery, which included the motorist’s initial and last name.
Lewis told CBSLA who”the strangest thing, that she literally–she picks the cat up, throws her in then drops off a delivery from Your Counter upstairs, just like only kind of… I do not understand and then pushes off. She doesn’t appear to be a stray. She’s not a… she’s got a collar”
The motorist supposedly removed Hog’s collar left it on the sidewalk, per a report by FOXLA 11.
Lewis said called Uber Eats about the driver and made it”very clear” that he and his loved ones are not angry with the driver and aren’t looking to get her in trouble,” however, said that the family was heartbroken.
When’s Hog coming home?'” Lewis advised FOXLA.
“We only want our cat back. That’s all we want.”
In a written statement to CBSLA,” Uber Eats said the episode was”unacceptable,” saying that the firm had already been in contact with the motorist and could do anything it could to rectify this circumstance.
“What the client documented is unacceptable,” the firm said. “We are working to have the cat returned, stand prepared to help in law enforcement investigation, and will choose the proper action against the shipping man.”
Lewis told local information outlets that his feline was beloved by generations of inhabitants in the neighborhood, noting that kids in the neighborhood had participated in drawing contests of the cat and frequently made outfits which Hog could wear.
“Hog is at a weird way the very first thing I kind of was a dad to, therefore we only want her back,” Lewis explained.
The title of this Uber Eats driver was not mentioned in some of the reports.
