SAN ANTONIO (September 24, 2019) – A baby goat has been brought into Animal Care Services after being found running in a shopping center that houses a meat market and taqueria. The young goat, or kid, is a female and believed to be a little over two months old. She was found this morning in the strip mall off Bandera and Hillcrest that houses a number of businesses including the restaurant, meat market, a dentist’s office and cell phone provider. Witnesses say the goat was lying down on the corner of the property and didn’t appear to be injured but there’s no word on what she was doing at the shopping center to begin with. The black and brown goat, which has piercing blue eyes, will be kept at ACS, in hopes an owner claims her. Staff has named her Feta. It is illegal, unsafe and unneighborly for owners to allow their livestock or other animals to roam off their property.
