Pygmy goat found in bar

April 4, 2013 at 1:24 PM

BUTTE, Mont., April 4 (UPI) -- Animal control officials in Montana said they are trying to track down the owner of a goat found inside a local bar.

Jacki Casagranda, supervisor of the Chelsea Bailey Butte-Silver Bow Animal Shelter, said an animal control officer responded 1:30 a.m. Sunday to a bar in Butte on a report of a goat being brought inside the facility and the animal, which shelter workers have dubbed Shirley, was brought to the shelter when no one at the facility claimed ownership, The Montana Standard, Butte, reported Thursday.

Casagranda said bar patrons were fortunate the goat is a friendly and calm animal, as that is not always the case with animals brought to loud, public places.

"Animals should not be in bars," Casagranda said. "In general, for the community, for the owners, and for the animal it's just not a good situation."

Casagranda said authorities are hoping to identify the goat's owner.

"Hopefully we'll find the owner," Casagranda said. "If not, hopefully we'll find her a good new home."
