Kentish Express Ashford & District - - School Report -

One of the fox­hound pup­pies that was stolen from Eger­ton last week has been found.

Stu­dent and Stroller, a pair of 10-week-old hounds be­long­ing to the Ash­ford Val­ley Hunt, were taken from a barn off Bed­lam Lane on Sun­day, July 7.

Thieves broke in and took the dogs, their food, horse blan­kets and groom­ing kit.

Me­gan Palmer, 29, whose hus­band Adam, 30, runs a dairy farm, said their sons Harry, six, and Olly, two, were heart­bro­ken.

Stu­dent was found by a cou- ple in their gar­den in Pluck­ley, and was re­turned to the hunt on Fri­day af­ter they called a dog war­den, but Stroller, sandy and white like a tra­di­tional hound, is still miss­ing.

The bur­glars also broke into a neigh­bour’s prop­erty and took two fer­rets, diesel and a petrol strim­mer.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call PC Jonathan Nook on 01233 896288, quot­ing crime ref­er­ence ZY/19050/13
