As goat breeders, one married couple (and friends of this Redditor) took wonderful care of their quality tested and loving animals. Sadly, two of their goats were stolen from their farm. When they saw a listing on Craigslist for a “free baby boy goat- just come get him,” they went in hopes of finding one of their stolen goats. Instead of finding one of the missing members of their farm family, they found a scene so disgusting it horrified them. The goat was there, as listed, but the conditions he was found in were despicable.
He wasn’t one of their goats, but he desperately needed help. The baby was found on a chain, wrapped around a pole of a lean-to.
The kid was soaking wet, shaking uncontrollably, his voice completely horse.
There was blood and bites all over his face. Two small dogs were chasing and biting him.
The husband and wife were absolutely appalled by the state he was in. They took the little goat home immediately. He immediately cuddled into the woman’s lap.
She took him into the shower, warmed him up and washed him.
Now, he has had antibiotics, vitamin B, and probiotics.
He is slowly recovering, panicking whenever his new parents are out of sight.
The woman who was giving away the goat attempted to claim that it wasn’t her dogs that attacked the baby. The couple knew better, though, judging by the fresh wounds and saliva he was covered in when they picked him up. They couldn’t just leave this little fella to suffer and die. Thankfully, they stepped in and took care of him. People who are so cruel to animals need to be reported and have their abuse put to an end.
Share this little goat’s rescue story, he deserves it!
