Couple scammed by goat rental company | kgw.com Portland.

Let’s back up a minute and break this charlie-foxtrot of Portlandiness down piece by piece, shall we?

  1. Goat rental exists.  And not as a “petting zoo” type thing either.  These are legit companies that will rent you goats–GOATS–to clear your land for you. Because of course.  
  2. Goat rental businesses are successful.  Google tells me there are three in the greater Portland area.  Successful enough to attract con artists.
  3. Farmer people, the supposed salt of the goddamn earth, were totally okay enough with the idea of goat rental that they paid half up front.
