LONGVIEW — A Cowlitz County Humane Society official says a Longview teen who wanted to try being an outdoorsman has confessed to killing and skinning a family’s pet goat.
The Daily News reported that Mike Nicholson of the Humane Society said a tip led the animal welfare group and Cowlitz County sheriff’s deputies to the 17-year-old boy. He was 16 at the time the goat was killed last summer.
On Monday, the Humane Society forwarded the case to the county prosecutor for a charging decision.
Goat owner Dennis Leinweber said he’d like the opportunity to press charges and seek restitution. He said he wants the boy “to know the severity of what he’s done.”
Stratton, a friendly 6-year-old goat, ould come running if called by name, its owner said.
