Goats to become Cumberland Gap park property if they aren't claimed

Two goats could soon become the property of the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, if their owners don't claim them by the end of the month. 

The curious visitors were found on the Tri-State Trail about a week ago, Park Ranger Carol Borneman told 10News. 

These aren't the first unexpected animal guests that have shown up at the park. Borneman said they've previously found peacocks, a pot belly pig, and even some horses.

While the goats were found near town, there's a chance the animals could have wondered away from Middlesboro, Kentucky. 

The park is hoping to reunite the goats with their rightful owners. But if they aren't claimed by November 28 they will become park property. 

To identify and claim the goats, contact Park Ranger Brad Cope at 606-246-1087 or 423-302-7328. He's available from 7 am to 2 pm, Friday through Tuesday.
