CHICAGO (AP) - Seven dogs have been safely reunited with their owners after two men stole a minivan they were left in outside a pet day care in Chicago.

The day care owner originally told the Chicago Tribune the van’s driver was ordered away from it at gunpoint Wednesday, but surveillance video released Thursday shows that the van was unattended when two men walked up to it, got inside and drove away.

The van was found about 4 miles from the day care on Thursday, when a woman called police after seeing a dog sitting in it for at least an hour in bitterly cold temperatures.

A witness told police that one of the thieves pointed a gun at him when he tried to stop the minivan soon after it was stolen.

Messages seeking comment were left with the day care owner.
