SIX goats have been found dumped in a field after a woman claimed they were stolen from the Broadlands Estates, Romsey, yesterday.

The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, alerted residents at around 12pm after eight Pygmy goats, including nannies and kids and boers, were taken.

Now the concerned owner is appealing for information in a bid to track down the remaining two goats after six of them were found in Coldharbour Lane with their ear tags cut out.

She said: "We would welcome any information as these goats were obviously going to be sold.

"We still have a black pygmy nanny and white kid missing; both are disbudded."
