A baby pygmy goat has been taken from a petting zoo at the Arizona State Fair, leaving a mother without her kid.
Petting zoo manager Emilie Owen says GusGus went missing Wednesday sometime between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. and immediately notified security.
Owen says GusGus, a pygmy goat that weighs less than 5 pounds, can easily fit under a jacket or a purse.
She says the animal’s mother, Custard, has been crying for him.
According to Owen, the baby goat needs his mother’s milk to survive.
Fair Livestock Director Karen Searle says they have received calls from potential witnesses and are passing credible tips to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
Officials say whoever took GusGus can drop him off at the fair near downtown Phoenix, no questions asked.
