HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police are investigating the theft of 23 goats from a Kahuku farm.

KHON-TV ( reports the purebred goats last week were apparently bound with duct tape over their mouths. They were taken between 8 p.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. Friday.

Some animals were left behind with ropes around their necks and duct tape over their muzzles to keep them from making noise.

Keal Pontin says the value of his family's missing goats was about $10,000.

The theft included both bucks and pregnant nannies that were due to give birth this week.

The Kahuku Goat Farm is offering a reward for information leading to the return of the goats or the arrest of the thieves.
