Despair for five year-old boy after his pet goat is stolen from Wisbech home
A FIVE year-old boy has been left devastated after his pet goat was stolen from its Fenland pen.
The eight month-old Pygmy goat, named Lucky, was taken from a shed outside a house in Outwell, near Wisbech.
The black, white and grey goat belonged to youngster James Cable and was looked after by his mother’s friend Tracey Goodall. He was kept in the shed with his two half-brothers.
Miss Goodall, who found the shed had been broken into when she went to check on the miniature goats on October 14, said James had been heartbroken by the theft of his beloved pet.
“He is still crying at school,” she said. “They had to do their Christmas lists last week and at the top of his list was a goat.

“It’s horrendous. We have had posters up everywhere we possibly can. You just don’t think that people will steal a small family pet.
“They are very social animals and as soon as he was taken the other two were crying and calling for him. They are still running out of their shed to call for him. We all miss him dreadfully. He is such a character.”
