Does anybody remember a mountain goat that used to be seen alongside rt 78 near Phillipsburg? I remember always looking for it as a kid, and forgot about it until I drove by that area yesterday. My wife doesnt believe me.

Wait, on the way back from Pa, last Monday, I noticed for the first time something sitting on a rock ledge. I thought it to be a statue, as I was driving by at 70. Didn't take notice of location though.

Goat and land belonged to a Mr.May don't think he even lives there any more I asked him about that goat once and he told me he owned that billy and he would make trouble with the guy next door by eating his shrubs when the guy had had enough he told Mr.May that he was gonna shoot that goat if he didn't do something to solve the problem.
Mr. May took the goat to the back of his land and he stayed there till he died. Mountain goat no I think he was a Neubian still cool to see him up on the rocks back than bet it has been 8 to 10 years since I last saw him.

I thought I was crazy. I saw this about two weeks ago while headed out to Cabelas. It was a large sheep or goat with horns bedded on a rock ledge.

Crazy...I figured it must just be loose from a local farm.
