Anyone missing some goats?

Friday Funny…

No kidding: Goats found on streets of White Plains

Cops were scratching their heads Tuesday after they were called on twice to corral goats spotted grazing along Gedney Esplanade.

“We’ve had snakes, turkeys, skunks and even a bear, but how two goats ended up here is a mystery to me,” said Lt. Eric Fischer, commander of the Detective Division.

Fischer said police were called to Gedney Esplanade and Macy Avenue about 11:30 a.m. Monday by a passing motorist who reported seeing a goat. Animal Control Officer Mike O’Sullivan arrived a short time later, captured the critter and took it to Police Headquarters.

Police got another call late Tuesday, from another motorist, about another goat in the same area. Officer Morgan Finnie managed to coax that goat into his squad car.


The police say no one reported missing goats.

I just don’t know…

But they look happy and are being well fed.

    I grew up across the Hudson from White Plains, in Rockland County, and there was a family I knew there who would rescue abandoned animals of all kinds (mostly farm animals). I remember going to their bathroom and there were baby ducks in the bathtub, goats, and chickens, turkeys, and sheep in the back yard and multiple dogs in and out of their home. I don’t know how legal it was but their back yard was fenced in, and their household was certainly unusual.

    Got to see the goats while visiting the ‘Animal Hospital of White Plains’. Dr Lagana cares for the White Plains’ K9 unit so the Vet Hospital was first choice to keep the goats until/if someone claims them. Looks like they are going to an animal sanctuary though there have been many well-meaning requests to adopt them.
