SeMo Goat's Rotten Week Ends with Eviction

OCTOBER 26, 2005 - Posted at 3:32 p.m. CDT

 

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - First she was assaulted with spray paint, then kidnapped.

Now, Sharon the goat faces eviction.

The seven-month-old animal has been the mascot for the Sigma Chi fraternity at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau.  On October 21, someone got inside a security fence at the frat house and spray-painted the goat.

Then early Sunday, the fraternity reported Sharon missing.  She turned up unharmed a day later inside fencing at an animal hospital.

No arrests were made in the theft.  But the fraternity learned it's also a city ordinance violation to keep barnyard animals inside city limits.

The fraternity has a week to find a new home for the goat.
