Dear PoP – A Petworth Landmark No More, The Tethered Goat is Gone

“Dear PoP,

Just wanted to let you know that Petworth’s famous tethered goat on Webster Street (across from EL Haynes) is no longer with us. I noticed it was missing a few days ago while out on a walk. It is sad because it was such a random sight, a large white sculpted goat that was chained up in the front yard. It actually looks like both the goat house and the house next to it are getting cleaned up. Not sure if they are going to be renovated and sold or what, but I thought you would like to know that one of our old timers is gone. I am sad about this, but I understand that the goat most likely wouldn’t have been considered an amenity. That is all.”

One of the few lawn decoration of the day sculptures that I labeled phenomenal. I loved the fact that it was not just an awesome goat but that it had a chain around its neck. Too good. Indeed, today is a sad day.
