A goat walks into a bar ...

From The Associated Press

BUTTE, Mont. — So the goat that walked into a Montana bar last weekend ... was stolen from a petting zoo.

Fairmont Hot Springs Resort general manager Steve Luebeck says staffers knew the goat was missing but didn't realize it had been stolen until they saw a story in The Montana Standard on Wednesday reporting that a goat had been taken into a Butte bar early Sunday.

The mild-mannered pygmy goat, named "Shirley, was taken to a shelter by police and later returned to the resort's petting zoo.

Luebeck said he never has had an animal stolen from the zoo, which has goats and miniature horses. He says zoo managers would like to know who took the animal so they can press charges.
