Sheep rustled in baaad crime
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.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
