lost Brooklyn goat now safe @ Farm Sanctuary

not the actual goat or brooklyn

“On Saturday, January 6, Farm Sanctuary, the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization, welcomed Joey the goat to its New York Shelter. A young goat around six months old, was found on Wednesday, January 3, wandering among pedestrians in Brooklyn, New York in a busy intersection on Hoyt Street. The Brooklyn branch of Animal Care & Control of New York City (AC&C) was called in to rescue him, after receiving a call from a local resident. Joey is a Boer goat, a larger breed originally from South Africa. Given his ear tag, Brooklyn AC&C determined he must have escaped a slaughterhouse.” [Farm Sanctuary]

Sixteen days earlier a baby calf escaped in Brooklyn.
