Wayward Dog and Goat on the Lam

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- A yellow lab and a goat may seem like an odd pair to be roaming the streets of Las Vegas but that's exactly what animal control officials came across Wednesday.

The pair was found wandering in northwest Las Vegas near Durango and Alexander. There are several larger properties up in that area that house a variety of animals.

The two female animals seem to be quite attached to one another. When they were brought to the Leid Animal Shelter, and separated, the goat caused quite a commotion and kept butting the wall.

"We were concerned if the dog and goat were separated in a kennel situation she would continue to pound on the kennel until she got in contact with her partner," said Andy Bischel, The Animal Foundation.

In a somewhat unusual move, the two escapees were put into the same kennel to keep things quiet.

After 8 News NOW ran the story, a viewer called the owners who are on vacation in Utah. The owners called Lied and told the shelter about their situation. The shelter will be keeping the goat and dog safe and sound until Saturday when the owners get back in town.
