    The sad part here is, he's still a bottle baby. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this guy doesn't have much experience with bottle kids.......and we all know how fragile and touchy bottle babies are.

    I don't think there's going to be a happy, skipping into the sunset with rainbows, ending that he wants, unfortunately.

    I get that he thinks he's saving it but more than likely he's not.

    He has a lot of videos regarding this on his facebook page it looks like. I think the one where they were live streaming this "heist?", was removed by facebook.

    It is sad about the life of a meat animal.
    I feel the same way but, do respect those who choose to use them for what they were meant for.
    He actually stole the kid.
    Not all kids are meant for meat.

    He says, breeders take the kids away from the mama at 6 months old.
    Well what did he do? He took this kid away before weaning age.

    He should be sent to jail for theft and trespassing. :(

    Pam are you familiar with any breeders down there that could be missing a kid? Some farms are so big im sure they wouldnt notice one kid gone. Maybe they could catch the guy on not having a scrapies tag, you might be more knowledge able then I am about CA laws

    wow, I hope he is held accountable for his actions. Scary to think about larger groups with trailers like he talked about in the video.

    All they said is that the kid is from a family farm

    :( I hope they find the owners and get this stopped before something very bad happens.
    Someone could end up getting hurt or killed snooping around on someone's property and stealing livestock. He is influencing others to do what he has done.
    I feel bad for the baby goat, I hope he will be ok.

    There are more cases of these jerks stealing goats being shared on FB...

  18. Why put it on FB?? You're just admitting to theft and when the owners find out, then there is your guilty admission.

    I know they think they are doing something worthy, but that poor baby may die in his care now taking him away from the mama and expecting him to magically take to the bottle. So then it was pointless anyway. Aside from the fact that one being "saved" vs the thousands still getting processed...how does he know that little baby wouldn't have become a show goat or a pet since it's a family farm? :(

    Not to mention Cruelty to Animals and Animal Endangerment. Bit of irony there, I know, but it fits.

    I'm so shocked that a thief would put out a video.
