The locked fence on the family’s farm was found cut, and a trailer with the goats was taken and found empty and abandoned by a nearby highway. The thief also allegedly vandalized a watering system used for the herd.
Owner Brian Allen estimated the value of the stolen goats and vandalized property at $10,000. The loss is especially difficult since the stolen goats were expected to give birth to an additional 200 goats, Allen told CBS.
Allen is reportedly desperate to get the stolen goats back, posting flyers and searching Craigslist ads, but has had no luck finding them yet. The company is currently offering a reward for information that leads to the return of the goats.
