JSO cancels public auction for sale of goat

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – You’ve goat to be kidding me...

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) canceled the public auction of a goat they stumbled upon last month.

The sheriff’s office said on Friday that the owner of the goat finally came forward.

Some people poked fun at the goat auction when JSO made the announcement on social media.

“I’ll guess I’ll cancel my road-trip plans,” one person said.

“We’ve been following this story in Mississippi...” someone said.

“Wait.....JSO was going to auction off a goat? LOL!!!” another said.

“How did they not know their goat was missing for the last month and show up at auction time,” someone said.

“Guess I’ll cancel the Bar-B-que,” one person joked.
