The owner of a Hawaii farm is offering a reward for any information leading to the return of 23 goats that were kidnapped from the property sometime between Thursday night and Friday morning.

Keal Pontin, the owner of the missing goats, said the kidnappers placed duct tape over the animals’ mouths to keep them from making noise during the heist. This was probably a traumatic experience for the usually friendly animals, Pontin told KHON-TV.

Among the kidnapped goats were a number of pregnant nannies due to give birth this week. The missing goats are valued at about $10,000 and police are actively investigating the crime.
