Butte-Silver Bow Animal Shelter supervisor Jacki Casagranda sits with "Shirley" a pigmy goat picked up at a local bar by the animal warden last weekend.
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) -- So the goat that walked into a Montana bar last weekend ... was stolen from a petting zoo.
Fairmont Hot Springs Resort general manager Steve Luebeck says 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 reporting that a goat had been taken into a Butte bar early Sunday.
The pygmy goat, named "Shirley, was returned to the resort's petting zoo.
Luebeck tells The Standard he has never had an animal stolen from the zoo, which has goats and miniature horses. He says zoo managers would like to know who took the animal so they can press charges.
