Rae, the much loved sheep of Ray White Tuakau, is baaaaack! After being rustled from her post last year she has finally been returned to her home, a little traumatised from her heist experience, but happy to be home. The boys in blue returned her safely, back to the joy of her colleagues.
Rae has been given the all-clear from the vet, and she is able to stand strong and proud again to entertain children and annoy the town dogs.
The perpetrators who were involved in the Great Tuakau Sheep Rustle of 2017 were identified, thanks to members of the public.
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.
