Goat Herder, Durham City Council Resolve Zoning Issues

Posted December 18, 2003 4:11 a.m. EST

— Some goats in Durham received some good news. They can continue to graze in the Bull City.

Ricky Pope raises about 50 goats on three acres. Everything was fine until a city zoning officer issued him a citation.

His farm was annexed into the city, but Pope thought he could keep operating his farm.

Pope asked City Council members to rezone his property to a rural designation, and they agreed.
