Johannesburg - KwaZulu-Natal police appealed on Wednesday to the owner of a herd of goats, found hidden in a forest in Donnybrook, to come forward and claim his animals.

"A Donnybrook farmer was driving past a pine plantation on 28 October when he noticed 15 goats that had been tied with ropes and hidden in the forest," police spokesperson Jay Naicker said.

"He contacted the Donnybrook SA Police Service, who arranged for the goats to be fetched and taken to the animal pound in Howick."

Naicker said police had not received reports of stolen goats in the area, and nobody had come forward to claim the herd of horned herbivores.

He said the recovery of the goats illustrated the cohesive nature of the Donnybrook community.

"The successful recovery of the goats is indicative of the fact that a healthy relationship exists between the Donnybrook farming community and the broader Donnybrook community as well as the Donnybrook SAPS."
