TEN DOGS, one pheasant and a goat were impounded by Vincent council in the first half of this year, according to the latest ranger report.
Non-canine impounding is so rare that the bird and goat were lumped under the “Dog Impounding” section of the report.
“The goat was returned to its owner but it could no longer be kept at that residence due to health regulations so it has been rehomed to a farm,” said a Vincent council spokesperson.
The bird’s owner couldn’t be found so it’s gone to live at Joondalup Resort where there are several other pheasants roaming freely. Nine of the ten dogs impounded were claimed by their owners with the other rehomed through the dogs refuge home.
