A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary, who added the pair were ‘friendly’ nanny goats, said: ‘Seven of the goats were later recovered after being found wandering in the road in Nursling but the two females, one of whom is possibly pregnant, are still missing.

‘The incident is being investigated by Hampshire Constabulary's specialist Country Watch team.

‘The photo of mother and daughter was taken six months ago so the daughter will be bigger.’

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting the crime reference number 44200177169.
