KULA (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Maui goat farm is offering a $5,000 reward after seven of their milking goats were stolen.
On Sunday two goats were stolen from the Surfing Goat Dairy Farm in Kula. Dopio, a brown goat with black spots, and Spreckles, a young white goat were taken from the dairy on Omaopio Road.
"Milking goats like these have a value of about $12,000 each, but they are not only valuable, they are family to us. We know their mothers and fathers for several generations now" said dairy owner, Thomas Kafsack.
On July 19, five goats were stolen, three young white goats named Alyss, Sadie and Keawe; a tan goat named Latte; and a dark brown goat named Maxine.
"With these seven goats missing, our milking herd is now reduced by nearly 10 percent, which equals 10 percent less milk or cheese," said Kafsack.
The reward will be given for the return of the live goats, no questions asked, or for information leading to their return.
According to Kafsack there have been a number of goats stolen from Maui farms in recent weeks. Those farms are located in Haiku, Wailuku and Hana.
