Goat missing from Minnesota Nativity found safe
FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) - January 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- A goat that escaped a Minnesota Nativity scene is safe after 25 days on the loose.
Curly was found Wednesday afternoon on a farm southwest of Fergus Falls.
Tony Loomer came out to feed the horses and goats on his farm and noticed the extra goat. KBRF-AM reports Curly appeared hungry, wet and cold and had lost weight.
Curly's owner, Jim Aakre came to make sure the goat was his. Aakre thought about going home to get a horse trailer, but Curly was already cold, so he and his wife, Karen, gave Curly her first car ride.
The 3-year-old Angora goat was supposed to be part of a live Nativity scene but escaped while she was being unloaded for a Christmas Eve service at Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
