A BABY donkey which got taken away from its mother three weeks ago has been found in Buckinghamshire.

Two-month-old foal Moon was taken from a field at Miller's Ark, in Blackstock Lane, Hook, where she was with her mother, Astra, on May 15.

Police put out an appeal for information and witnesses following the theft of baby Moon.

There were a number of credible sightings and officers followed up on all leads they received.

Elizabeth Miller, who owns Miller's Ark, said the farm has been "really touched by all the support shown to us" since Moon was stolen.

The farm even received an offer by a private donor of £10,000 for Moon's safe return, and a Go Fund Me launched to raise funds for surveillance cameras to prevent any other animals from being taken.

Over three weeks of searching and Moon has been found safe and well in Buckinghamshire.

Miller's Ark posted a video of the donkey arriving at the farm.

They wrote on Facebook: "Yesterday evening we travelled to Buckinghamshire, liaised with Thames Valley Police and have recovered little Moon.

"We are beyond thrilled and Mum and foal are finally back together. Moon appears to be in good health, thank heaven, and we will make sure that Moon and her mum Astra get lots of love and care as they re-discover each other.

"It is because of all of you, amazing people, who have supported Moon, Astra and the team at Miller’s Ark, sharing this story far and wide - and now you have brought her home.

"A huge thank you to all streams of the media who spread the story further, Thames Valley Police for their quick response and Surrey and Hampshire Police for their work behind the scenes."
