She-goat might be one held captive (7)


I believe the answer is:


'one held captive' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'she-goat might be' is the wordplay.
'might be' indicates an anagram.
'shegoat' is an anagram of 'HOSTAGE'.

(Other definitions for hostage that I've seen before include "Detainee - gash toe (anag)" , "Prisoner held as surety" , "Person taken as security" , "One caught" , "Kidnap victim" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
