A goat used as a mascot by a far-right political party in Switzerland has been kidnapped by left-wing rivals just a week before the country’s General Election.

Zottel has been used in political hustings and campaigns since 2006 by the Swiss People’s Party SVP.

But sometime during the night of October 14, he and another goat were snatched from their stable in Zurich, at the home of Swiss MP Ernst Schibli.

Mr Schibli said he had received an anonymous letter with death threats to “fascist goat Zottel” this summer.

Left-wing group Anti-Fascist Action have claimed responsibility for the kidnapping in a statement posted on the internet – which the SVP responded to by issuing a statement demanding Zottel’s return.
