Goat abandoned outside Gorleston police station and dog left tied to bench

A BILLY goat was left in the freezing cold after its owners abandoned it outside Gorleston police station.

The goat, which has been named Paul Bruce, was found tied to a post outside the station on Thursday, January 26.

The black and white goat is now being cared for by PACT animal sanctuary in Woodrising, near Hingham.

Chris Rockingham, who runs the sanctuary with her husband, George, said: 'We don't get many abandoned goats. We have had a couple over the years but they have been dumped in woodland.'

On Wednesday, January 25, a couple walking their dog found a black and white collie cross dog tied to a bench on Great Yarmouth seafront.

Mrs Rockingham said the two-year-old collie, who had been named Scruff, was in a good condition and had a healthy weight.

She added: 'Apart from being cold and scared he is ok. He is a bit wary of people. So far no one has come forward to claim him so he could be put up for rehoming. He won't find it difficult to find a new home.'
