Seven goats were snatched off the Buckinghamshire family attraction Kew Little Pigs during raid by thieves last night.

Now the farm owner fears the seven goats - called Ariel, Gabriel, Domino, Bacardi, Bailey, Violet and Georgia – could be slaughtered for their meat.

CCTV footage shows lights allegedly belonging to a vehicle used to raid the farm in the early hours. 

Kew Little Pigs' owner Olivia Mikhail said: "I am absolutely petrified that they will be killed for meat, they are part of our family and I can't stop thinking about what might be happening to them.

"These are tame pet goats, and they have a happy life on the farm.

"We take security incredibly seriously so this is obviously a planned raid by someone who has come and seen what measures we have in place. It feels like a terrible violation.

Ms Mikhail was appealing to the public to help return the goats, who were a relatively new addition to the Old Amersham farm.

She said: "If anyone knows where they are please, please get in touch with the police or us directly.

"We just want them home." 

Thames Valley Police are now investigating the incident.

The force said: “If anyone has any information that may help this investigation, you can make a report by calling 101 or making a report online, quoting reference 43220481706.”

Despite the incident, the attraction remains open as usual.
