Res­cue farm pleads for re­turn of blind baby goat

The owner of a res­cue farm south of Ed­mon­ton is plead­ing for the re­turn of a blind baby goat taken from their prop­erty Sun­day evening.

Melissa Fo­ley, the founder of the Farm An­i­mal Res­cue and Re­hom­ing Move­ment, or FARRM, out­side Wetaskiwin, said she is “very wor­ried” about the brown and white goat named Daisy.

In ad­di­tion to be­ing blind, Daisy re­quires med­i­ca­tion, she added.

Fo­ley said she went into town Sun­day evening, and when she re­turned her gate was in­cor­rectly closed and Daisy was gone. She said her neigh­bours saw an un­known ve­hi­cle and heard the dogs bark­ing.

“She still has a lot of is­sues which is why we’re so con­cerned, she re­ally thrives with a spe­cific rou­tine and spe­cific peo­ple and voices to rely on,” she said.

Daisy was born healthy, but was at­tacked by crows as a baby, leav­ing her blind, Fo­ley said. She’s been liv­ing at the res­cue since the spring, and has bonded to the farm’s blind sheep.

Fo­ley said her staff have ex­hausted ev­ery av­enue and are now ask­ing for the public’s help.

“We have ab­so­lutely no clue, we have no rea­son to be­lieve that it has any­thing to do with our res­cue or was a spe­cific tar­get on Daisy or our farm,” she said.

She said she’s con­tacted the RCMP, and is of­fer­ing a “large cash re­ward” for in­for­ma­tion.

She’s left a ken­nel on her drive­way in case some­one wants to re­turn Daisy, no ques­tions asked.
