No, Goats Were Not Stolen From This Michigan Zoo
You got to love social media. The easy connection between you and your friend, and the occasional hoax.
Some video and images began circulating around the internet, showing some alleged "stolen" goats from the Saginaw Children's Zoo. It should be noted and known though, that all ten goats missing and action, aren't actually missing.=
A rumor started making its round, gaining attention from law enforcement agencies, as well as the zoo itself.
“People have been calling the zoo over the weekend, concerned after they saw all this on social media,” Executive director at the Saginaw Children’s Zoo, Nancy Parker, said. “We have people in the zoo who are very protective, and they’re disturbed by it.”
As of today July 6th, all goats are still infact there.
“They may be inferring that the goat was stolen to get more ‘likes’ and ‘shares,’” Parker said.
One of the Facebook posts that was tagged to this heist, had 500 shares as of July 6th.
