Pygmy goat missing from the Washington State Fair safely returned to family

PUYALLUP, Wash. — A pygmy goat who was missing from The Spring Fair at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup Friday night, has been safely returned, according to the goat’s owner.

Cowboy was part of the Cascade Pygmy Goat Association show.

Kaci Cluzel tells KIRO 7 that Cowboy was taken between 10 p.m. Friday night and Saturday morning, but a representative for the State Fair says the goat was just missing.

In a statement, the Washington State Fair said, “We were notified early this morning and everyone has been on the lookout for him. Our heart does go out to this family, we know these FFA kids love their animals.”

According to Kaci, she received a Facebook message from a stranger late Saturday night, asking if this was a picture of their goat.

When Kaci said it was, he explained they were willing to meet with her to give the goat back. They had just purchased the goat from someone, he said.

At this moment, Kaci is heading to the Fair to reunite Cowboy with her son.
