Maine Woman Rescues Goat From Penobscot Bay on Cold, Windy Day: ‘Filled With Adrenaline’

Saved by the Jacket

There was a dramatic, adrenaline-filled water rescue on a cold, windy Maine day this week — and it involved a goat. On Tuesday, a local woman became a hero when she jumped in a kayak to help a shivering, soggy, swimming goat that had escaped from the veterinarian in Belfast.

“I know it’s just a goat, not a person but the memories would’ve been horrible [if the goat died], instead they’re great memories,” she said.

Holmes says she plans to practice knot tying this winter and put a life jacket on her back deck just in case she has to perform another rescue some day.
