The two-week-old Oxford Sandy and Black piglets vanished from Surrey Docks Farm. They rely on a regular supply of milk from their mother and staff say they may not survive on their own.

Eleven of our beautiful two week old Oxford Sandy & Black piglets were stolen from the Farm after the team locked up at 7pm on Friday 14th September.

Staff opened up on Saturday morning and found half of each litter had been taken, barn doors were all shut and padlocks still in place on the main gates.

The police are investigating and we’ve contacted anyone who might be approached with piglets for sale.
