    Can I just say that the goat is incredibly stylish and sort of makes me want a goat of my own? I am presuming those are not allowed in Shaw, but can someone well versed in city ordinances confirm?

        Service animals are exempted, right? HA.

        ……so backyard chickens are illegal? I know handful of people that have them (quite publicly) but I guess Animal Control just looks the other way?

          Per DC regs, Title 24, Section 902 of the D.C. Municipal Regulations, which says that chickens can be kept provided they are not “permitted to run, fly, or stray within fifty feet of any building used for human habitation.” Also a few schools have permission to keep chickens

    Dan, why isn’t there a goat tag? How do I share all the goat posts at once so I can prove to friends in other cities that DC is superior in its goathood?

    My friend spotted the goat up near Frederick, MD. Turns out, the pair are walking across the country to raise money to purchase an orphanage and run an outreach program in Nairobi http://www.needle2square.com/#!our-story/component_74511

    Sigh, and here I was, getting all excited about seeing the goat around DC.

    • Yeah, that’s mentioned in the link within the link above.
