Ansel and Petal were found in April at a nightmare farm in New Jersey. Covered in a "carpet of crunching bones," the farm hosted nearly 200 neglected animals and many more rotting carcasses. "They were being starved to death," Leanne Lauricella, the Barnyard Sanctuary volunteer who took in the pair of goats, told The Dodo.
There were four newborn goats on the property. One was already dead. Another perished a day after the rescue. "We didn't think he was going to make it," Lauricella said of Ansel. "He was just really sick and weak."
