A tiny foal has been stolen from a field - and her heartbroken owners say she won’t survive without her mother.
Titch was last seen with her mum Bella at the six acre field in Pilsworth, Bury, on Friday afternoon.
But when owner Charlotte Turner returned to check on the horses the following morning, they found that the seven-week old foal had ‘disappeared into thin air’.
Her theft has been reported to police, but Charlotte and her mum Jeanette hope that someone will have enough conscience to return the little horse. “We’d be happy for them to just leave her somewhere safe, or with a vet.
There will be no consequences - we just want her back,” says Shetland cross Titch was living in a field, off Moss Hall Road, with her mum Bella and grandmother Lulu - who Charlotte has owned since she was six-months-old.
Though the disappearance has been reported to police, Jeanette fears that officers will struggle to find the little horse, who is around the size of a large dog.
She says the fencing wire around the field was cut two weeks ago and the horses got out.
Anyone who has seen Titch is asked to report it to the police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
