NASHUA, Iowa (AP) - The owner of an eastern Iowa zoo and farm says more than 20 tons of hay was stolen from the property over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Amanda Slessor tells KWWL-TV (https://bit.ly/1pFPz4v ) more than 30 hay bales weighing 1,500 pounds each were taken from the THR Zoological Farm near Nashua. She estimates about $3,000 in hay was stolen.

She says she left the gate unlocked while she was gone because she was expecting a delivery.

Slessor says she might have to sell some of the animals if she can’t afford to replace the hay.
