POTSDAM, Ohio - A nearly frozen baby goat was revived when a farmer used an unconventional approach in an attempt to save its life.
Dennis Albaugh found a baby goat who had been rejected by its mother in freezing temperatures. The goat was found buckling in his barn and was unresponsive.
Albaugh took the newborn goat indoors and used his oven at a low setting to warm the goat as quickly as possible. After a few hours the goat began to show signs of life.
UPDATE: In the end, Albaugh’s efforts weren’t enough. Despite Goliath’s progress throughout the day, the goat took a turn for the worse Thursday evening.
Goliath died around 9:45 Thursday night.
“We’re heartbroken,” Albaugh said shortly after Goliath’s passing. “We had hoped for the best. He was doing so great this afternoon. He was getting so strong. But he just took a turn for the worse, and his condition deteriorated rapidly. The coldness and exposure time was just too much.”
