Taxidermy items and oil paintings - including two paintings believed to be worth about £10,000 - have been stolen in Bures.
It happened at an outbuilding on Saturday at about 11.30pm.
An offender entered the premises, made an untidy search and stole various stuffed animals including a wildebeest, impala, panther, warthog, iguana and beaver, and a clock decorated with antlers and horns.
Several oil paintings were also stolen including a huntsman and four hounds, a girl pitching hay, a huntsman and single hound and a white and brown dog with French writing in the background.
The paintings of a huntsman and four hounds and a huntsman and a single hound are believed to be by artist John Nost Sartorius and worth about £10,000 for both.
