30 Starved Baby Goats Rescued From Home

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA (KPTM)- 30 baby goats, or kids, were rescued from a home outside of Omaha Wednesday.

Officials at the Nebraska Humane Society said the goats are extremely malnourished, some have frostbite, and some still had their umbilical chords attached.

All 30 of the goats were male and between 3-4 weeks old.

"I don't think we've ever rescued this many goats or had them come into the shelter because they were little," said Pam Wiese, with the Nebraska Humane Society.

Wiese said animal control officers found dead goats at the home as well, and are still investigating how the goats may have died.

"They've had a tough start and they are pretty fragile," said Wiese.

The goats have to be fed every six hours because they are so young and their condition is so fragile.

"You go, oh they're so skinny! You just want to stuff them with food but you can't do that because their little tummies can't take that," said Wiese.

By 5 o'clock Friday, all the goats were adopted out.

Wiese said officers are still investigating. As of Friday, no charges have been filed against the owner.
