CLACKAMAS CO., Ore. (KOIN) — A 5-day old goat named Harry Truman believed stolen from a pasture in unincorporated Oregon City Saturday was anonymously returned Sunday.

On Saturday, the goat’s owner said Harry Truman and his mother Lola were in a front pasture while she was inside for a short period of time.  When she came back outside, Harry Truman was gone and Lola was pacing the fence line.

Neighbors helped search for Harry Truman but he wasn’t found. Lola received support from her favorite horse during the difficult time.

Sometime between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Harry Truman was returned and found screaming in a shed behind the barn at the house. The owner said it seemed he had been bottle fed since he wasn’t hungry and his waste didn’t seem right.

Lola seemed happy to see Harry Truman.

Harry Truman was named after the the Mount St. Helen’s lodge owner at the time of the eruption and not the 33rd President of the United States.
