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.
