Dead Goat Mystery In Yakima Man's Backyard

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.- It's a case of dead animals in one Yakima backyard, and the homeowners say they don't belong to them.

About three days ago, Steve Compton says he unexpectedly came across, what he remembers, as four dead goats. He says he found them in the very back of his yard behind a pile of weeds. Now, he says he wants to know where they came from and how they died.

Steve says his wife called the Yakima Sheriff's Office and filed a report. KNDO confirmed that on Wednesday, but the investigator was unavailable.

As this investigation continues, Steve says he has a couple ideas of what he think happened.

"I think someone could have dumped them over our barbwire fence because they were found just a couple feet away," he said.

Or, Steve says maybe it's an environmental problem, since the dead goats were found just a couple feet from a stream.

KNDO knocked on the doors of all the nearby neighbors, no one was home. The one neighbor we did see, drove away.
