A goat at Home Depot

by Vikki Enos

From the June, 2019 issue

The man at Home Depot looked familiar. The goat, not so much.

"It was around ten a.m. on Saturday," a customer recalls. "I'd seen him before." With his camo "U.S. Navy" jacket, bushy beard, and hat sprouting pink and yellow fake flowers, he certainly caught the eye. So it took her a moment to notice that he had an animal with him.

It was leashed and about the size of a Boston terrier, but something seemed different. "When I looked closer," she says, "I saw it was a goat."

As the man chatted with a vendor, the goat stood by quietly, without so much as a bleat. When she reached the register, the customer announced, "There's a man with a goat over there."

"Oh, that's Larry," the clerk replied. "He's a farmer. He's a very nice man."

The clerk said she'd seen stranger things. One customer came in with a monkey, she said, and another a lizard.

Why bring a lizard to a home store? The customer told her that that he was rehabilitating it and it couldn't be left alone.     (end of article)
