HONOLULU (AP) — More than 20 goats were stolen from a Hawaii farm, and the owner says the thieves used duct tape to keep the animals from making noise.
KHON-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1aijpQI) the 23 purebred goats were taken from a farm in Kahuku, on Oahu's North Shore, sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning.
Keal Pontin says the thieves left behind other goats at his family's farm with ropes around their necks and duct tape over their muzzles. Pontin says the experience likely was traumatic for the friendly animals.
The theft included both bucks and pregnant nannies due to give birth this week.
The missing goats are valued at about $10,000.
Police are investigating, and the farm is offering a reward for information leading to the goats' return or the arrest of the thieves.
