Liz Reiser didn’t plan on chasing goats around Upton when she made arrangements for a few to hang in her yard to eat poison ivy and overgrowth.
At approximately 7 p.m. on Tuesday she discovered three goats escaped her North Main Street home.
Liz said luckily, “There were three people walking down the street towards Pratt Pond who saw them before we did. They were helping out, slowing down cars.”
“These good people helped us direct them towards our neighbor’s yard,” she said.
Liz said once they were able to leash Oskar the “lead” goat, they were able to leash up the other two with the help of her neighbor.
“It was a pretty exciting escapade for everyone involved,” she said.
After the goats were leashed, Liz and her neighbors walked the escapees home.
Liz sends a big THANK YOU to the people who were walking down N. Main street and her neighbor for their help in corraling the goats and keeping them safe.
