Prize-winning goat disappears from Colorado fair

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Police in Greeley, Colorado, are investigating who's got the goat — a grand champion animal that vanished this week from a county fair. The Greeley Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1m0UCoU) the red-colored Boer (BOHR') goat was reported missing Monday, hours before it was scheduled to appear at the Weld County fair's junior livestock auction. Two of the animal's halters also were gone. The goat is owned by 18-year-old David Smith of Niwot. Smith's father says he doesn't want to insinuate that someone stole the goat. He says it's possible the goat escaped and is just out in a cornfield somewhere. Despite the goat's absence, the auction went ahead, and the prize-winning animal sold for $5,500 to MS Biotec. Police say they don't have any leads. ___ Information from: The Tribune of Greeley, Co, http://greeleytribune.com
