Entrepreneur Frank Trigona tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-review that he decided to move his goats from a tract of six acres he owns in Jeannette, a town about 25 km east of Pittsburgh.
Trigona bought goats in summer to eat weeds on property, only to have the City Council to pass an Ordinance that prohibits barnyard animals from city property.
Trigona named goats after city officials also animals and marched in a parade of Halloween, where some people cheered and whistled animals. The goats are also a Facebook page with almost 2,700 "friends" (other children, no doubt).
The contractor was cited for "goat violations" at least five times, according to CBS affiliate KDKA.
Trigona says he gave the fight and moved the goats on a farm after he was fined $ 935 to keep them.Tags: goats, crimesider, jeanette, kids, pennsylvania topics: Daily blotter
