The Klungkung Police rescued two puppies stuck inside the seat of a confiscated motorcycle at their station in Bali on Wednesday.

The motorbike was confiscated after the police dispersed illegal street racers on the Ida Bagus Mantra bypass road early on Wednesday. 

Klungkung Police spokesman Comm. Adj. Putu Gede Ardana said the officers noticed yelping and whimpering coming from the motorbike. They forced open the seat and found two puppies.

“The puppies were making noises for help, so we rescued them,” Ardana said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.

He added that the motorcycle owner had not come to the Klungkung Police station to retrieve the bike and puppies. 

The police said they would give a warning to the motorcycle owner and would return the puppies if the motorcycle’s owner intended to keep them.

The Klungkung police were tipped off to the street racing by locals. (dpk)
