A vehicle carrying 11 goats was recovered on Friday night after it was stolen in Newark, KwaZulu-Natal earlier that evening.

According to IPSS Medical Rescue spokesperson Dylan Meyrick police recovered the Toyota Tazz at Thrings Post on the R74 North, North Coast Courier reported.

Newark police spokesperson Malusi Ngubane said a resident in the Doornkop area informed police about thieves reportedly stealing goats. Police then followed up on this information.

“We found the Tazz, heading towards Maphumulo, abandoned on the R74,” Ngubane said.

While the suspects managed to flee, the stolen goats were returned to their owner and are said to be doing well.

This came just three days after police officers patrolling in Meyerton, Gauteng discovered 14 goats packed into a minibus taxi.

The bizarre discovery on May 17 landed five men behind bars.

Images of the stolen goats, which circulated widely on social media, show some of the animals standing backwards in the front seat of the taxi.
