The adorable goat found on Sunday, March 17th by the NYPD is certainly not the first to escape slaughter in New York City. Just a few months ago, two goats were found on the subway tracks who were thought to have escaped a slaughterhouse. Fortunately, they were sent to the Farm Sanctuary to be taken care of by Jon and Tracey Stewart. A brave cow in Queens had the same lucky fate three years ago.
It just so happens that this goat had the luck of the Irish when on St. Patrick’s day, he was found roaming around 132nd Street and Locust Avenue. The NYPD found him and took him to Animal Care Centers where he was given a medical check.

The goat most likely escaped from a slaughterhouse, but those scary days of awaiting death are behind him as he heads off to Skylands Sanctuary and Animal Rescue in Wantage, New Jersey. There, the goat will join the fast little lamb who was found running along the Gowanus Expressway just a few days ago.
Dairy goats suffer the same cruelties as dairy cows. They also cry like babies when they’re sent to slaughter. It’s an existence that no living being should have to endure. This goat is so fortunate to be one of the few who gets a happy ending!
To help other goats who aren’t as lucky as this sweet one who will spend the rest of his days at a sanctuary, sign this petition to demand justice for the ten decapitated goats found in the Chattahoochee river.
