"I called him and said, 'Hey, I heard you have a goat for sale. It's the one that's in the video that's been circulating,'" Lauricella told The Dodo. "He says, 'Oh yeah, well, somebody's coming to look at her.' I said, 'How much are you selling her for?' He said $60. I said, 'I'll give you $300.'"
Grace's former owner agreed to sell her to Lauricella - but Lauricella first wanted proof that Grace was alive and that she would be receiving the same goat from the viral video. Grace's owner said he was out of town and would send photos and videos of her upon his return.
