We have recently been informed that a six week old female donkey foal has gone missing. Bobby-Jo was born on 31st August 2008 and has gone missing from her field in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk where she lived with her parents, Charlie and Fred.
Her owner, 82 year old Mr Brooks, went into hospital to have a hip replacement and some time on either the 8th or 9th October, 2008 she went missing. Both Mr Brooks and his wife are extremely distressed.
There are obviously fears for Bobby-Jo as she still needs her mother and her mother’s milk and it is thought anyone who has her might have asked for advice on rearing "orphan" foals or where to buy milk replacer or even goat's milk.
Bobby-Jo is brown with a white nose and white round her eyes and has a very fluffy, thick coat. She would have fitted into a large car or van.
Her disappearance has been reported to Norfolk Police and anyone with information is asked to contact the police directly on 0845 4564567.
