A male pygmy goat has gone missing from a farm and rescue centre in Elsenham and owners believe he has been stolen.
The goat, named Gary, was discovered missing from Daisy May’s Farm, in Hall Road, on Sunday (April 17), and searches of surrounding fields and areas have yielded no results.
Yesterday (Monday), a broken fence post was discovered at the back of the goat enclosure and staff believe that Gary was taken overnight on Saturday.
Farm manager Rachel Berry said: “We have searched around the vicinity, but these goats never really go far from each other so it seems strange that he would have gone off by himself.
“We found damage to the fence post at the back of the enclosure and no goat would have done that, so it seems like someone has taken him.
“The dogs were kicking up a fuss on Saturday night so maybe that was when someone got in to take him but I can’t be sure.
“It’s a such a shame, he was only a small little goat, but I suppose he was easy to hoist over the fence.”
