Reward up to $250 for goat that fled Fergus Falls nativity sceneFERGUS FALLS, Minn. — The reward has been increased to $250 for a goat that fled a Christmas nativity scene in Fergus Falls.
The goat, Curly, was supposed to have a role in a nativity scene at Bethlehem Church. Instead it escaped and has been on the lam ever since.
KBRF radio in Fergus Falls reports Curly made an appearance in town Tuesday, and residents gave chase but didn't catch it.
The owner, Jim Aakre, says the trick to catching Curly will be to sneak up on it when it has a limited escape route and then grab its horn or halter.
Jerry Mortenson is one citizen who contributed to the reward funds. He says he wanted to add an extra incentive because he's getting more concerned for Curly as sub-zero weather settles in.
