GRAND LAKE--GRDA officers can add "goat rescue" to their list of skills. The officers found themselves in an unusual position last week when they received a call about a goat in distress.

A concerned citizen notified officers about a baby goat that was wedged between rocks on a cliff on Goat Island on Grand Lake.

Goat Island is appropriately named because it is the home for a number of wild goat.

Officers responded to the island where they found a female goat only days old that was trapped between the rocks.

Officers were able to remove the baby goat from its place of entrapment and sent it to Wild Heart Ranch in Rogers County for treatment.

The baby goat was dehydrated and weak, but is expected to fully recover. 

Officer Cody Marquis cared for the kid before transporting it to Wild Heart Ranch.
