Farmers urged to mark goats; six more stolen in Dodge County

Authorities urge farmers to mark their goats, after six more animals were stolen in Dodge County.

Over 100 goats were taken since late July from two farms in Dodge and Green Lake counties.

The latest theft was reported last week in the town of Lowell.

All the stolen goats were valued at more than $32,000.

Dodge County Chief Deputy Blaine Lauersdorf says it's a mystery that so many goats have been missing around the same time and his officers do not have any leads.

He said the most recent animals did not apparently have any markings.

And Lauersdorf says it would be very wise for farmers to mark their goats so officers can identify them.
