How valuable are those goats that roam three spoil islands near Ocean Isle Beach?
Jeannette Beranger, manager of research and technical programs for The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, took a boat trip out to the islands Monday to investigate.
“We had a great day on the waterway,” said Beranger, who hitched a boat ride with Capt. Jeff Williamson of Get Busy Fishing Charters at Ocean Isle Fishing Center.
They saw a few goats, but need to see others, she said.
