Alaskan Goat Evading Authorities

One “very fast goat” that was about to be sold for meat in Fairbanks, Alaska ran from police officers and animal control for two days straight, now he’s the town’s local celebrity.


Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Control sent out a public cry for help on Monday to the owner of this goat via Facebook. Apparently, no one was able to capture him and the story reached nationwide news.

The Story Of The “Very Fast Goat”

The goat was sold to some folks who had it in the back of their trailer with other goats and were transporting them to the slaughterhouse. The mission was to sell the goats but before they could get there one of them somehow escaped the trailer.

It quickly ran away and the police were called sometime later due to the goat out on the freeway dodging cars. When the authorities showed up to handle the situation, no one could get their hands on him. He was way too fast for everyone.

Finally, with the help of some good samaritans, an Alaskan State Trooper named Lemay was able to wrangle the farm animal and put him in the back of his cruiser.


People on Facebook started calling the goat Curry and the story was so exciting for the small Alaskan town that he’s now known as the Fairbanks’ local celebrity. Because of his rise to stardom, the owners of the goat said they’d be willing to find it a new home instead of sending it to the slaughterhouse.
