This story that comes from Lincoln Nebraska is kind of comical since a goat that got away from his owner three weeks ago managed to avoid being captured by law enforcement as well as wildlife officials for three weeks since according to the wildlife officials who learned about the brown and white goat reported missing on November 8 was seen on many occasions in the city area but since the wildlife officials only have two legs and a goat has four legs. the goat was able to outrun them. The goat was captured by four Lincoln Animal Control officer on Wednesday November 23 when the goat managed to climb on the girders underneath a bridge which made it easy for four animal control officers to take the loose goat into the Capital Humane Society. The wildlife officials are trying to reunite the goat with his owner as soon as possible. I am sure that the wildlife officials will use social media to locate the owner of the goat.

I have a friend and his son has about 20-30 goats. He really enjoys them. He takes good care of them. They are easy going animals.

I remember seeing stories on the news channels that goats are very good companions in the same way as cats and dogs.

@RubyHawk I believe that the mountains are the home to goats like water is to sharks.

Goats are great pets to have since I remember the late actor Gregory Sierra who had a pet goat named Chico on the sitcom Sanford & Son.

@celticeagle The television reports is that goats eat grass as well as other objects like vacuum cleaners.

@Deepizzaguy Goats are actually good pets, they are inoffensive.

It is a comical story indeed that wildlife officials had a hard time catching a goat.

@Deepizzaguy In my area, goats are used to keep wild brush and grasses at a manageable level to reduce wildfire risks. A couple of years ago, some of these goats broke through a fence near where they were "working" and roamed the streets until they could be collected.

That is very true since some animals do not like to be stuck inside of a fenced home.

What I know of goats is that they are useful to eat food as well as being clever in avoiding being captured by the authorities.
