No Goats Allowed, City Code in Lincoln

Updated: Friday, June 20 2014, 04:49 PM CDT

LINCOLN -- Fighting to keep her family together. A Lincoln woman takes on city government to house her pet goats at her home which lies within city limits.  City code prevents certain "livestock" animals from being kept within city limits, but Kaitlyn Heffren says the two pygmy goats have been part of the family for nearly three years now.  She says the small animals are less trouble than the family dogs.  Some neighbors complain about the animals. Others in Lincoln have a different opinion.

One neighbor, Robert Barger, is siding with Heffren saying that he "enjoyed hearing them bleat much more so than hearing the dogs bark. and they were cute to watch. I liked watching them go for a walk in the neighborhood. They were just like a puppy dog running along beside them."


It came to the attention of the city about two months ago.  Heffren was then forced to move the goats to a friend's property just outside town.  A meeting will be held tomorrow night to determine where the goats can live.
