Couple removes animals after complaints of 'goat ghetto'
PENNGROVE, Calif. (KGO) -- Residents of the Private Estates section of Penngrove have been complaining for years about the goats and junk on their neighbor's property on cold springs road. When their calls for help went unanswered by Sonoma County government officials, they called the ABC7 News I-Team and now are finally getting results.
Under a plea agreement, the owners agreed to remove the goats by Wednesday or risk the county taking the animals. The I-Team was at the house Wednesday morning when Sonoma County Animal Control officers went to the property expecting to remove more than 50 goats and other animals. But when they arrived, the goats were gone. The couple who live at the property have moved the goats to an unknown location.
Animal Control did remove one llama left behind by the owners.
