THREE Pygmy goats have been stolen from a paddock in Coombe Bassett.

Police are now appealing for the public's help to find the culprit.

According to their owner, it is believed the goats were taken between September 5 and 7.

"The goats [pictured above] - one is grey/black, one is white/grey and one is black."
