Security cameras have captured a 'purr-petrator' stealing a statue tiger from a Mandurah business on Sunday afternoon.
Standing at one metre high and almost 2.4 metres long, the fiberglass feline was stolen from Soils Aint Soils at the weekend.
Worth almost $1000, the tiger was handmade in Indonesia and is believed to be the only one of its kind in Western Australia.
Soils Aint Soils Mandurah managing director Charlie Hamilton labelled the act as "unbelievable" but admitted he did have a laugh when he watched the CCTV footage.
"My friend, a good Samaritan, drove past and saw it happening on Sunday and called me. I was here within 20 minutes but I was looking around and couldn't work out what was gone," he said.
"I didn't even think it was going to be the tiger because it's so big and then I watched the footage and I just couldn't believe it."
Mr Hamilton said he was unsure how much the tiger weighed but knew it "wouldn't have been easy" to get it over the fence.
"If I need one of them to be moved, I usually have to get at least two people to do it, so it's amazing he got it out how he did," he said.
"We have a completely secure facility with 16 security cameras so he was easily captured and won't get away with it."
Police are still investigating.
