Goat on the loose in South St. Paul; baby lamb missing in Inver Grove Heights

Don't call the police if you see the goat.

If you're driving through South St. Paul and spot a goat, don't call the police department. 

That's the message the South St. Paul PD posted on Facebook Thursday regarding a goat that's taken up residence on the hillside near Concord Exchange and Camber Avenue. 

"This goat (which to the best of our knowledge the community hasn't yet named for some reason) has been getting more comfortable in our fine city and has been venturing closer to our roads in search of food, recreation or to take part in our vibrate nightlife as the weather warms," the post said. 

Police have contacted Farmaste Animal Sanctuary in an effort to relocate the animal to its facility in Lindstrom where "he/she can hang out and do goat things with other goats" before it wanders onto a road and gets hit by a car. 

The department is asking anyone who spots the goat, who appears to have been named by MN Crime on Twitter as Gorgeous George the Gentleman Goat after a Twitter poll, to call or text Farmaste at 651-400-0097 and not the police department. 

Farmaste is "already on the case" and has staff "willing and able to swing down and give us a hand in corralling her/him and relocating to a life of rest and relaxation," the department noted, calling the organization "wonderful," adding that it helped relocate another goat named Iggy from Inver Grove Heights recently. 

Stolen lamb in Inver Grove Heights 

A family in Inver Grove Heights is pleading for the public's help in finding its newborn lamb that was stolen from the farm about two weeks ago.

Chelsie Jeffries posted on Facebook April 12 saying the lamb was taken overnight after the thief couldn't get any money out of the registers, noting they've filed a police report. 

The family is offering a $500 reward for her safe return or information that leads to her return, "no questions asked."

FOX 9 notes the lamb was 10 days old when it was taken. Jeffries heard the lamb's mom making noise in her pen and went and checked on her to discover the lamb missing. They checked security footage and saw a person taking the days-old animal.

Jeffries told the news station they'll make more money returning her for $500 than they would if they sold her. 

Bring Me The News has reached out to Jeffries for more information.
