This morning I decided to change my route from the trails to the road. I headed down the road and had just gotten past the municipal buildings when something caught my eye. I stopped and looked across the road and there behind a small bush I saw some movement. Was it a coyote, a dog or a baby deer, I didn't know. I stopped and slowly crossed over to get a better view. What was it! As I crossed the little animal came out from behind the bush and i realized it was a baby goat. I watched him, he watched me. I moved closer and he moved farther away. It was outside the fence but I could see no opening to get it back in. Not wanting to scare it and have it dart to the road I turned and went back the way I had come. I continued on my run and near the end came back to the gravel path that I had seen the goat on. I stopped to see if he was still there and was happy to find him safely behind the fence.

Phew! I would have been worried about that little guy too!
