At about 9AM on Thursday morning I ran to the back porch because my dog was carrying on with a different sort of fervor than he usually does when he spots an animal in our back yard. The surprise was on me when I discovered only a few feet away standing on some pallets behind our shed a young white goat.
I have no idea where it came from, but I supposed someone must be missing it. I called the dog warden and they chose not to deal with it. I called 911 and after telling them I had no emergency asked them how many calls they get regarding goats? They sent some Sheriff's Deputies out to attempt a capture, but the goat had wandered off towards West Corners.
So, if you are missing your goat, he was last seen off Payne Road in the West Corners area. Perhaps someone else has seen him.
