PHOTOS: A Tail Of Burien’s “Lost” Goat On Maplewild Ave
Courtesy the good folks who hang out on the Three Tree Point Yahoo Group (you can join here) comes these photos of a “lost” goat (we kid you not…) spotted on Maplewild Ave SW near the new retaining wall:
Here are some of the notes left in the group thread:
You never know what you are going to see when you are walking down Maplewild…
I’ve seen a lot of strange things down here, but that has to take the cake! Thanks for the smile! Â I hope you find the owner!
Goat alert! In an effort to contain the wandering goats yesterday, one of them was confined to a deck below the house just to the south of 16XXX (me), and apparently it is still there. Does anyone know who to notify to come and claim the poor dear???
I think someone was using them to clear the overgrown hill above 33rd Ave (by the Maplewild Wall). Itâ€™s a great idea to clear those hills.
I am sure you are right. I saw the signs and the fence yesterday. There were several goats trotting around this afternoon. Some boys captured and returned one of them. This guy was working free-lance to help clear the weeds along Maplewild during his time of AWOL status.
I called the person that owns the “goat trimmers” business, he’s headed over there now to count heads. His number is 1 877 289 5126 What a co~inkydink!
No word yet on the fate of the “lost” goat, but we presume that it’s safe, and if not, there are plenty of blackberry bushes to eat nearby so it will never go hungry…
