Council to Hold Hearing on Goat

Olean Common Council has scheduled a public hearing on whether a family can keep a dairy goat in its backyard.

Some of Jenna Wagner's neighbors say they don't have a problem with the goat, while others do, and say allowing Wagner to keep her goat may open up the door for other animals to be kept in the city, too.

Wagner and her mother, who gave her the goat, said they weren't aware that goats are prohibited in the city. The goat is tethered on a 25-foot lead line, and shares the backyard with a flock of 12 chickens
