POLICE are hunting midnight raiders who stole more than 200 ducks from a farm.
About 230 three-monthold Khaki Campbell and French Cherry Valley ducks worth PS3000 were swiped in the early hours of last Friday, August 19.
The thieves struck at a barn near Laurencekirk, Kincardineshire.
Investigating officer PC Marc Camus said: "It's believed a vehicle similar in size to a pick-up truck or a transit van would have been sufficient to transport the animals.
"The breeds of ducks taken are not common and are difficult to source. They may be offered for sale to other poultry farmers."
PC Camus appealed for anyone with information to call police on 101.
