Hoover the Goat
When our Animal Control Officers are called to the sites of ritualistic animal sacrifice, they often retrieve dead or dying animals. This young male goat was lucky, despite the fact that he was in extremely poor shape when we rescued him in North Bergen. Judging from his attire, he was going to be used in a sacrifice, but he either escaped his prison or was let go.
By the time we got him, he had an upper respiratory infection, runny nose and was emaciated. He was immediately placed under the care of the Popcorn Park veterinary staff, and for the first few days, his head was buried in the hay and grain. We named him Hoover as he inhaled every bit of food possible. Thanks to his rescue and good care, Hoover is now the picture of health, but he sure would like some sponsors - just a reminder that the hay and grain will always be flowing. Could he vacuum up your love?
