The wool has been pulled over Tuakau’s eyes as the town’s mascot, Rae the sheep, was fleeced from outside the Ray White office on George Street.
It was stolen on Wednesday 25 October around 3.45pm.
The yellow sheep has been a popular stop for local children who enjoy giving her a cuddle.
Rae’s family and friends want to ram home the point, that Tuakau just want Rae back.
Suggestions to where Rae might be have flocked in, but so far there has been no luck in finding the culprit who stole her in what has been described as a sheepish act.
If anyone has any information to shear, please contact the Tuakau Police on 09 236 7300.
