It’s day 27 and Honey, the goat that went missing from Tilden Little Farm on January 7, is still nowhere to be found.

David Zuckermann, the park’s supervising naturalist, says there have been many phone calls and lots of interest, particularly after East Bay Regional Parks offered a $1,000 reward for the safe return of  the goat, as well as the arrest and conviction of the person, or persons, who took her.

Zuckermann says one Berkeley police detective in particular has been actively pursuing leads, but so far nothing has turned up.

With so much time having elapsed, Zuckermann is beginning to sound downhearted: “I was holding out that it was a prank, but now I don’t know what to think.”

Anyone with information about Honey’s possible whereabouts should contact the Regional Parks police on 510-881 1833.
