A Goat Walks Into A Bar...

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Animal control officials in Montana said they are trying to track down the owner of a goat found inside a local bar.


Jacki Casagranda, supervisor of the Chelsea Bailey Butte-Silver Bow Animal Shelter, said an animal control officer responded 1:30 a.m. Sunday to a bar in Butte on a report of a goat being brought inside the facility and the animal, which shelter workers have dubbed Shirley, was brought to the shelter when no one at the facility claimed ownership."


I don`t know if this incident is interesting material for an essay, but it`s certainly a promising premise for a joke:

A goat walks into a bar, and the bartender says "ewe get out."

A goat walks into a bar. He goes up to the barkeep and orders a beer. The bartender says, "we don`t serve goats here." The goat says: Why not? The bartender answers: We Don`t serve kids.

I`m surprised an animal control officer responded to a call at 1:30 am from a bar reporting a goat had been brought inside the facility. I would have thought it was a drunken dude playing a stupid prank.

I think we can all agree that a noisy bar is no place for a goat, such establishments are reserved for animals lower on the food chain, namely human beings.

Let`s hope the animal shelter will find a good home for the goat.
