We only recently found out about the goats living on Steep Rock, Manitoba.
Just like that, Hopper & Gonzo have left the island.
In short, the province ordered the goats off the island despite an online petition signed by more than 1,500 people in support of the goats.
The province said it issued the order after a resident complained the goats were grazing on the island without a permit, like one required to graze cattle on Crown land.
Even more info on the unfortunate situation below.
That’s all she wrote for a pair of goats – they’ve been removed from their Lake Manitoba island by powerboat. Hopper and Gonzo, a tourist attraction on an uninhabited 1.2-hectare island off the village of Steep Rock, about 210 kilometres north of Winnipeg, were hauled away on Monday as ordered by the provincial government.
