also, were they a bit rough with the goat? Dragging it by the horns.

1. That would be appropriate around here

Not sure where you are so it may not be needed there. Around here there is a lot of livestock and sometimes they get out and in a few cases their not knowing where they belong what else is the sheriffs to do

7. Not out in the country we don't

In the towns some of them do but in many places there simply isn't any money for a separate animal control so the job falls on the police and sheriffs departments

I'd fear for the animals

15. Quite frankly, some animal control departments would be worse...

In Boulder City, NV for example, there is one animal control officer...she leaves traps out and doesn't check on them for weeks...some cat people have been going around checking them because feral cats get in there and die...not to mention the other wild animals.

22. Hello neighbor.

 

I live about 50 miles northwest of Boulder City.
Our animal control is attached to our Sheriff's Dept. and the animal shelter is staffed by county employees and inmates.

9. The Sheriffs have a cheap labor pool to run those shelters, too

More times then not, the shelters are adjacent to county jails and staffed by inmates.

3. Why would they not?

Sheriff's departments serve rural areas in most states. City cops work in the city. In rural areas, there are animals that escape or are roaming around. Sheriff's departments deal with that kind of stuff all the time.

I live in Ramsey County, Minnesota. I live in the city of St. Paul. Our county also has farmland and rural areas. Our Sheriff's department has an open livestock trailer, too. It also has a mounted unit, and owns horses, and horse trailers.

17. i think if you live in a rural area you are used to the sheriff having animal control under him

 

Ive ko idea why it seems strange that the sheriff would have animal trailers as its the norm in rural areas in my experience.

4. Because Houston isn't LA?

Wandering cattle, horses, farm animals.. are a non-rare occurence in Texas.

eta: And no, leading a goat by the horns isn't rough treatment.

Mounted Sheriff's Posse needs to get their horses to a trailhead somehow.

10. LOL, that poor goat! He looks bewildered,

like he's thinking "What? What'd I do, officers?" One thing I learned about goats from a neighborhood kid's 4-H exhibit: they pee spontaneously and often.

13. That's what I was thinking

poor goat under arrest Lol. Goats freak me out a bit because their eyes- the rectangle pupil is just weird. I guess one wouldn't notice unless you have one staring ya down ready to butt ya or at least that was the impression I got from the inlaws goat. Never turn your back on those things

16. They probably have animals. Horses and such. As for dragging the goat by the horns,

how would you suggest dragging it?

19. ask it nicely to follow? or tie a rope

around its neck and lead it! How could that possibly go wrong, after all its not like it has sharp horns or anything!

21. Very common here in Texas

The Sheriff's Posse uses them to transport horses when there is a horseback search.
