The memorably named company "Goats R Us" R in trouble with the law.
Judge Paul Fogel of Alameda County Superior Court ordered owner Egon Oyarzun and herder Wilfredo Felix to stand trial; both will be arraigned next week on animal neglect charges. Their troubles stem from October arrests after animal control officers found 10 dead goats and dozens of malnourished animals on the Orinda company's pasture.
As with any good company, Goats R Us has a retirement program for its loyal four footed employees. The goats in our herd are never sold for any reason, and when their "golden years" approach, their scope of work is kept local, just outside of our ranch, where they can roam the hills without encumbering the stress of traveling between locations. All goats are supplemented year round, wormed three times a year and vaccinated, but the geriatrics are given special consideration. They are our "buddies," and an integral part of our team, without whom we wouldn't be able to enjoy our success. Frequently, these retirees are visitors at local schools or senior centers becoming ambassadors for their kind.
