(Newser) – The baby pygmy goat that vanished from the Arizona State Fair has been found. Fair livestock director Karen Searle says a man walking his dog along a canal in Phoenix found GusGus and took him to a pet store, where an attentive worker called the State Fair. Searle says GusGus is hungry and tired, but not injured. He is being reunited with his mother. The goat quickly became a social media sensation after someone took the tiny animal from a pen Wednesday evening. The miniature goat weighs less than 5 pounds and is still nursing, making it difficult to survive for long without his mother. (Read more weird crimes stories.)
