    Teen charged with stealing two bicycles and a goat

    Police arrested an 18-year-old Southeast Portland man Tuesday on accusations of stealing two bicycles and a goat named Penelope.

    Sgt. Pete Simpson, a Portland Police Bureau spokesman, said detectives arrested Oleg Stepanovich Plyushchev after they learned he was attempting to sell a reportedly stolen bicycle on Craigslist.
    Following an undercover op, Plyushchev was also found to be advertising a dwarf goat for sale which had been reported stolen in August last year He's been charged with theft and released on his own recognizance.

    Does anyone else find it a little disturbing that the goat - tethered in a yard, was reported to have gone missing sometime between 3.30am in the morning and 12.45 in the afternoon? It doesn't seem right to me that any animal should be left tethered for that long, unattended. In fact....I don't think goats should be tethered at all.

    Poor little thing. (The goat, not the teen.)

    It was a dwarf goat so the 10 foot tether was like a 20 foot tether for a full size goat. Maybe the owner wanted the lawn cut in a circular pattern.

    I was going to say something like FleaSpirit said. Like,"As long as the goat could reach the whole yard . . ." In my younger, poorer days, I lived in a neighborhood where this was not abnormal!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    Obviously he stole the goat to put in the soup pot. After a few days he decided to keep it as a pet instead, but he needed to feed it. He stole some bicycles to sell for goat food. Et voila.
