Missing therapy goat found decapitated

Sebastian had been missing since February

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – The owner of a missing therapy goat tells News4Jax that 2-year-old Sebastian has been found decapitated on her farm.

Genny Johns said she was outside on her property when she detected a scent and found that someone had decapitated the goat, then used blocks of wood to cover him up. 

Sebastian, who was trained as a therapy animal for children and the elderly, went missing around Feb. 21 and Johns believed that someone may have stolen the animal.

Johns works at a veterinary clinic in Nocatee and adopted Sebastian when he was just 4 weeks old. She raised the goat as a therapy animal to be a companion for those who need him most, which includes Johns and her family.
