Rescue: Clover the Goat

The call came from Yonkers, NY, a few weeks ago — a woman near downtown at first thought she heard a cat in heat in her yard. She called us and described a young goat the “size of a small dog.” Small dog indeed!

When Animal Caregiver Mike Patrick returned from picking up this little gal, we discovered she was less than 3 days old, only 7 pounds, much smaller than our housecat… and her residual umbilical cord was still attached. How did she end up in a fenced-in yard in the middle of a residential neighborhood? We’ll never know, but with baby goat considered a delicacy for Easter in many cultures, we suspect she may have been spared by someone from that fate.
