I got home from visiting my new kid Penny and I had a very urgent message on my answering machine. My friend Kathy has 2 bucks that just showed up in her yard around 4 today...she has 2 pygmy/nigi does and was frantic because the one buck broke into her girls fence! I went over to find a Nigi buck that I estimated to be around 9-12 months old and a nubian mix buckling that looks to be around 2-3 months old. The nigi buck has a white tag in his ear that I assume is a scrapie tag, the little nubi has a metal tag imprinted with "meat" on it. I do know that there was an auction today about 30 miles away and one yesterday about 40 miles away.....I told her it was likely that a neighbor got these guys from the auction and didn't know how to keep them. I checked ears for tattoos and found none, her fear was that the nigi buck got her girls...of course I checked and each girl didn't look "used" so she breathed a sigh of relief! She has been going to the neighbors asking about where these guys came from with no luck....I told her to call animal control.....her hubby is not happy at all about this either. I don't know what more to do to find the owner, I can't keep them here and she has no place for them either except the dog box and she fears them getting hurt or preyed on by the coyotes around. Any ideas for a qwick fix if animal control won't help?
