Police are appealing for help tracing an alpaca named Kevin who was stolen from a field in south Wales.
Gwent Police released an image of Kevin on Tuesday in the hope that a member of the public may have spotted him.
Ginger-fleeced Kevin was snatched while grazing in a field at the farm where he lives in Llanover, Monmouthshire.
Officers say he has been microchipped so are hopeful they can return Kevin to his rightful owner.

A spokesperson for Gwent Police's Rural Crime Team, said: "Over the last few days a ginger male Alpaca (microchipped) has been stolen from a field.
"Kevin vanished from his field in Llanover, Monmouthshire - and anyone with information is asked to ring Gwent Police on 101."
Fully grown alpacas are smaller than llamas and reach up to 3ft tall and 13 stone. The animals are farmed widely for their wool.
According to the British Alpaca Society, it is believed that the alpaca and the llama were domesticated from the wild species vicuna and guanaco over 6000 years ago.
