"It's kinda crazy how it's by a church though it's weird...somebody just left a goat by the dumpster I guess they just didn't wanna throw it away I don't know it's crazy," said a man who says lives nearby and spotted the goat Saturday afternoon.

FCN did reach out to several government agencies on Sunday morning to find out if any type of investigation will commence.

According to the city of Jacksonville’s website, Animal Care and Protective Services does respond to dead animals, if they are reported and are on public property.
