BUTTE, Mont. (April 4, 2013)—A goat stolen from a petting zoo at a resort wandered into a bar last weekend in Montana, but didn’t get a chance to order.
Fairmont Hot Springs Resort general manager Steve Luebeck said staffers knew the goat was missing, but didn't realize it had been stolen until they saw a story in The Montana Standard on Wednesday that said a goat was taken into a bar early Sunday in Butte, Mont.
The pygmy goat, named "Shirley, was returned to the resort's petting zoo.
Luebeck told The Standard he has never had an animal stolen from the zoo, which has goats and miniature horses.
He says managers would like to know who took the animal so they can press charges.
