The residents of a small rural Texas town are coming together, using ATVs and horses, to try to locate a missing rodeo goat.

Local businesses have donated prizes and gifts worth more than $5,000, including brisket, as a reward for whoever finds the goat.

Alison Savage, president of the Willacy County Livestock Show and Fair says it truly is a team effort.

“Our county is a really small county, about 20,000 population, and a mostly agriculture, farming, and ranching community. And we’re very much one big family ... So, we’re excited that everybody wants to find our goat.”

The goat escaped a youth rodeo on July 15th, and residents say they last saw goat tracks in a cotton feed near Raymondville.
