Goats are popular in the heartland. The Nebraska Humane Society rescued 30 baby goats earlier this week and they touched off an adoption stampede.
The goats are three to four-weeks-old, extremely malnourished and in need of care when they were surrendered at a property just outside of the Omaha city limits.
Volunteers jumped at the chance to bottle-feed their new charges.
Dan Martin said, “Never fed a goat before. Fed kids before, fed grandkids before, but never a goat.”
While the baby goats were briefly up for adoption, by Friday afternoon the NHS said they were no longer accepting applications due to the high volume of calls and email inquiries about them. No kidding.
