JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. -- Johnson County Animal Control is asking for the public’s help to locate the owner of three goats found wandering the streets of Franklin.

Director Michael Delp said they received a call from a concerned citizen on January 3 about a female pigmy goat and two baby goats on the loose near State Road 144 and I-65.

 “It was easy to pick up the babies, but we spent all day yesterday chasing down the female goat,” said Delp. “Our fear was she would get hit by a vehicle or cause an accident, or that she wouldn’t survive the cold night.”

Delp said the goats are doing well, and now the agency is looking for the goats’ owner.

“I’m hoping they’ve just gotten out of someone’s barns and they don’t realize they are missing a mama goat and two babies,” said Delp.  “I don’t think we’ve ever chased goats down before. We’ve taken in goats before, but it’s usually an owner surrender.”

Anyone with information can call Johnson County Animal Control at 317-736-3924
