TODAY’S QUESTION: How much would you pay for Billy Goat Gruff?
Monday, September 6, 2010 | 8:44 a.m. CDT
Marvin Beechy lassoed Billy Goat Gruff on Aug 31. The goat was spotted all over Mexico, Mo. and had a large Facebook following (11,513 fans and counting) before Beechy caught him, according to a previous Missourian report.
"People hire me to catch cows and stuff, and I've caught sheep and cows before, but this was my first goat," Beechy said in the report. "He can run pretty fast, and he can duck his head pretty fast, too."
Billy is set to go to auction with all the proceeds set to go to the Mexico/Audrain Animal Shelter.
