Two goats rescued from a Cringleford back garden could have been stolen after a home was burgled, after their rightful owner came forward.
Staff from Pact Animal Sanctuary at Woodrising, near Hingham, were called on Sunday after the female pygmy goat and male kid were spotted on the loose.Pact co-founder Chris Rockingham said: 'The owners of the house were away at the time and their son and his girlfriend were house-sitting.
'When they got up in the morning they looked out the window to see two goats playing there.'
Enquiries at the time found no-one in the area owned goats nor had anyone any knowledge of the pair.
But after seeing the newspaper report when the goats were first found, a woman has now come forward and said she reported the goats as stolen following a break-in in May.
Mrs Rockingham said: 'The police were made aware then and have now been made aware of the present situation and they are still anxious to find the perpetrator.

'The owner has identified the goats but as she is concerned about possible future thefts, between us we have found a home which we are both happy with and will be able to visit. Sadly the lady has reluctantly had to relocate all of her animals [since the break in].'
