    Could I/Should I file a police report about them being missing?

    I would definately file a report. I am sorry they have not yet been found. Oh if that was my brother I would ban him untill he finds my goats.
    Here we must chip our animals. So all my animals have a chip.
    Oooh I am livid for you and worried for them.
    I am praying they will be found

    Sunny is the only one that has Tattoos and none of the other are marked yet. I was going to take my Nubian doelings in next week to get their tattoos and have their horns removed.

    What a horrible thing to happen! I hope you find your goats safe and sound very soon! Definitely contact the police and county sheriffs office. They are often the first to get reports of loose animals. Might also want to contact the county brand inspector because they are usually present at most auctions. Good luck!

    Keeping you and your goats in my thoughts. Hopefully animal control or the police have heard something.

    What a horrible situation. Praying you find them! Definitely get posters with pictures, your phone number, texting number, email, or whatever the best way to contact you is!

    Did all of the goats go missing, or do you still have one or two left? Just wondering if you could walk it around on a leash to see if it will call for the others. So sorry to hear this happened! :hug:

    Any news? Praying they are ok!
    Do you have a game camera or something you can put out to see if they return? Maybe set out some grain and put a game camera on a tree nearby it to see if they come around to any spots in your neighborhood.

    I have been thinking about you all day. I just can’t imagine having to deal with that. By the way... you should casually mention to your brother that you know a whole herd of women who know how to castrate...

    I filed a police report yesterday and hit all of the auctions going on. I plan on walking the ravines to see if they used them to get away. I was thinking about putting feed out but we have wild deer that come in the yard and I know they would eat all of the feed before my goats come home. I will also be going to the locale pounds and giving them my number and some pictures of the goats.
    If the goats were coming home and just leaving again I would know because we live on dirt roads and they would be leaving hoof prints. By the time they get back, I will have lost 80 pounds just from walking the roads looking for fresh hoof prints every morning.

    Your brother owes you a lot of money. I sure hope he is helping you look for them and not the total jerk he is sounding like.
