Feel Good Story: Firefighters Free Baby Goat From Pipe

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Marty Clauw of Macomb County said he returned home from work Tuesday to find the 11-week-old goat`s head had become stuck in the pipe, The Macomb Daily reported Thursday."


The firefighters may have had experience coaxing a kitty cat to come down from a a tree, but I bet this is the first time they freed a goat with its head stuck in a PVC pipe.


Marty treats his goat like his own kid (no pun intended), and he was overwhelmed with joy when the firefighters freed his goat. In fact he was so grateful that he named his baby goat after one of the firefighters.

Firefighters often have to console victims of fires, but this is one time when they were able to rejoice with someone who came to them for help.
