Pigs stolen from New Forest farm
14 pigs have been stolen from a farm in Fordingbridge in the New Forest, Hampshire.
The livestock were taken sometime between 5.30pm on Monday, 15 August and 6am Tuesday, 16 August 2016.
Weighing between 25 and 30 kilos, the pigs are tattooed with HB0789 on their shoulder.
“These pigs are likely to be kept and fed up for a number of months as they are not currently at the required size to be sent to an abattoir,” said PC Rob Morant from the New Forest West Neighbourhood Policing team.
“I would like to hear from anyone who knows the whereabouts of the livestock, or who witnessed the pigs being transported in the area.”
This news follows on from the theft of a lamb, also in Hampshire, which is thought to be taken to be sold on as meat.
Anyone with information should contact PC Rob Morant on 101.
