A woman has appealed to the public to help reunite a stolen pygmy goat and its babies.

Angela Cushion’s goat Dotty and three babies belonging to two other goats were taken from a locked shed near Newton Flotman, south of Norwich. They were taken between 5.30pm on Sunday, February 18 and 5.30am the next day.

The Gressingham Ducks employee, who has bred goats for more than 40 years, and currently owns 15 of them, has experienced goat theft before.

In May 2017, Dotty and her daughter went missing for a month, before being found in Cringleford.

Dotty currently has a new litter, which are now without their mother.

As a result of the second theft, Ms Cushion plans to move her goats to a different location.

She said of the four to six-week-old babies: “I just want to know if any of them are crying for their mums.”

The stolen goats are black with white patches.
