Dodge County Authorities Urge Owners to Mark Their Goats As More Continue To Go Missing

Dodge County authorities are urging farmers to mark their goats, after six more animals were stolen recently. Over 100 goats were taken since late July from two farms in Dodge and Green Lake counties. The latest theft was reported last week in the town of Lowell. All the stolen goats were valued at over 32-thousand dollars. Dodge County Chief Deputy Blaine Lauersdorf says it’s a mystery that so many goats have been missing around the same time – and his officers do not have any leads. He said the most recent animals did not apparently have any markings. And Lauersdorf says it would be “very wise” for farmers to mark their goats so officers can identify them.
