Snatched Baby Alpaca: "Could Die"
4:03pm 25th November 2011
There is a desperate search for a baby alpaca stolen in Cornwall who could have just days left to live.
Little Kittykat was taken from her mum in a field at Luxulyan on Sunday.
Owner Glen Brewer fears she is starving to death and just wants her home: "At nine weeks old she hasn't even tried to eat grass or experiment with drinking water out of a bucket. To get all her food and drink, she needs her mum for that and there's no other substitute you can use".
Police in St Austell are investigating and urging anyone who might have seen something, to come forward.
Peter Swann from Cornwall Camelids says, "Even an adult alpaca taken away from a herd and kept on its own, even with other animals like goats or donkeys, will very, very quickly pine and will probably pine to death. So this animal must be pining like mad, just for the company of her mother".4:03pm 25th November 2011
