Missing Goat Returned To New York Owners
MONSEY, N.Y. (AP) – A goat that had been missing since Friday has been reunited with his New York owners.
Authorities determined that the Nigerian dwarf goat had been “kidnapped” by a group of teenagers.
The Ramapo Police Department didn't have a missing goat list, so they put the goat on its missing dog list.
It was returned to the owners, an Orthodox Jewish family in Monsey, on Saturday.
Montebello village Mayor Jeffrey Oppenheim told Newsday Westchester that the goat was found wandering along Kevin Drive Saturday morning.
He said it apparently was a pet for one of the owner's children.
The family is grateful to have the animal back and does not plan to file charges.
