A Stolen Goat Walks into a Bar….

The Fairmont Hot Springs Resort in Butte, Montana, was missing a pygmy goat from its petting zoo. The staff didn't realize that the kid had been kidnapped, instead of just wandering off, until they saw a newspaper report of a goat in a bar.

Steve Luebeck, general manager at Fairmont, said staff knew the animal was missing, but they hadn’t realized it had been stolen until they saw Wednesday’s article in The Montana Standard that reported a goat had been brought into an Uptown bar at 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

A patron called police, and an animal control officer took the goat to the shelter.

The goat was returned to the petting zoo on Wednesday.

“She made it home, and she’s safe and sound,” Casagranda said.

Luebeck said nothing like it had ever happened at the petting zoo, which goats and miniature horses call home. He said he hoped anyone who knows about the incident will come forward with information. He said if livestock were stolen from a rancher, it wouldn’t be considered a joke.
