Humans are not the only ones to suffer in a fire
I was heartbroken to find out that 35 of them perished in the fire while "still on the job" in some sections of Mission Canyon.
Thirty brush-eating goats that had worked overtime in the upper reaches of Mission Canyon since the middle of March perished in the Jesusita Fire.
The goats were part of a herd of 175, the majority of which were trucked out of the canyon last Tuesday, shortly after the blaze erupted.
By Tuesday night, Lorraine Argo, owner of Brush Goats 4 Hire, who has rented the goats to the Mission Canyon Association on a number of occasions, said 35 goats remained in the canyon. - The Daily Sound
Our hearts go out to Lorraine and the remaining goats of BrushGoats4Hire.
A number of other non-domesticated animals were forced to flee their usual environs to escape the fire...a black bear, possums, bobcats and so many others. Many made it...a good number of them didn't. Fire doesn't care if you have two legs or four...it goes after anything in it's path.
