Update - Sheriff's Department Splits Up Goat and Great Dane Couple
The unlikely pair had until now been inseparable after they were rescued by animal lover Sandra Harrison on June 25. However, a tragic phone call came to the rescue center Tuesday that was destined to break up the odd couple's love fest. "I got a call that said, 'Dr. Fling, you're in violation of state law. State law says any stray livestock must be collected and impounded by the sheriff's department,'" East Lake Pet Orphanage veterinarian Karen Fling tells KXAS-TV.
Shortly thereafter, the livestock deputy arrived at the East Lake Pet Orphanage with a trailer and hauled heartbroken Minelli away. Apparently, both Minelli and Judy had a rough go of it for awhile, but both are bouncing back.
According to Dr. Fling, Judy is back in "good spirits," while Minelli the friendly goat has reportedly made a few new friends.
