(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — The Home of a Claxton Bay family is missing an important member.
Henry, a lamb that was born into it just three months ago, has now vanished. It has been missing for the past few days and was most likely stolen.
“He was not being raised for meat, he is a pet and we love him. The person who came and stole him is probably going to raise him for meat but he is just a little pet, just like you would have a dog or a rabbit as a pet and love it, that’s how we love him,” said one member of the family.
The family is asking that whoever stole Henry, to return him.
The owner said she was even offering a $500 reward to anyone who could have him reunited with the family.
The woman also took to social media, making a number of posts seeking the public’s assistance in locating the missing lamb.
Since then I have even felt as though I am going into a state of depression,” she said.
The last time Henry was seen was on Saturday.
He was placed in his pen in the yard which was then secured with locks. But sometime during the night someone came and carried out the act that has since left the family worried and upset.
The distraught woman said what was even more troubling to her was the manner in which Henry was taken away. The locks were still on the pen so whoever took him, had to squeeze him through the bars, she said.
“Whoever did it had to be marking him because it was only recently we separated him from his mother and placed him in his own pen. He only just start eating grass. They had to be marking him because all the time he was with his mother so they would not have taken the chance to take him then,” she stated.
The woman said this was not the first time such an incident had taken place with one of her family’s pets. She said sometime in either October or November last year her father purchased a baby goat but just days later it was stolen.
Asked if the latest matter was reported to police, she said this was not done.
“We feel like if we go to the station to report something like this they would just laugh and not take us on.”
She intends posting flyers in Claxton Bay and environs hoping to have Henry located and reunited with the rest of the family.
And if the person who stole him is reading this article, the woman said she wanted them to know that Henry was not just an animal, but a member of the family who is loved and is being missed.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the family at 353-4185 or 785-0198.
