Toronto police investigate after baby goat allegedly stolen during break-and-enter
TORONTO -- Police are investigating after a three-month-old goat was stolen from a Toronto farm during a break-and-enter.
The female goat, named Juniper, was stolen between the hours of 5:30 p.m. on May 5 and 7 a.m. on May 6 from Riverdale Farm, police say.
Police said the suspect, or suspects, entered the pen and stole the goat, but left its identical twin sibling named Justine unharmed.
“Riverdale Farm staff are understandably upset and are extremely concerned about Juniper,” police said. "We'd urge anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact us immediately so we can find her and safely return her to the farm."
Staff at the farm told police the goat would not leave the pen without her mother and would have likely cried out during the incident.
Juniper is described as weighing 30 pounds, with black and silver fur, brown legs and white ears.
Mayor John Tory posted to his Instagram Friday evening in an effort to reuinte the kid with its mother and owners.
Police said they are now reviewing security footage from the farm. If the suspect, or suspects, is caught they would be charged with break and enter and theft, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5104 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
