Goats gone wild

Wednesday, October 20, 2004

(Tim Jaynes, Staff)
It wasn't exactly the Wild West but it was close Tuesday when a small herd of goats fled their fenced enclosure and sent Sikeston Public Safety on a wild goose - make that goat - chase. The herd managed to make their way onto Highway 60 south of Sikeston and briefly interrupted traffic. It took the officers and employees of Potashnick Transportation to round-up the wayward goats. One report said the goats were headed to the Green Acres Sod Farm in an apparent bid to find greener pastures. Above, Gary Tatum, left and Walter Foster of PTI collect the final goat.
