Pygmy goats stolen in farm raid

Two miniature pet goats have been stolen from a Hampshire farm.

The Nigerian pygmy goats were taken from a smallholding on Blackhorse Lane, Shedfield, some time between 13 November and 16 November.

Police said the animals were of little value but their owners had been left "very upset" by the theft.

Hampshire Constabulary has issued a warning to livestock owners to get their animals microchipped, as thefts do occur during the festive season.
