KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- FOX 4's monthly "Zoo To You" segment is full of fun and facts. Each month a member of the Kansas City Zoo brings an animal by the studio and shares what makes them so unique. On Tuesday, Dec. 5 Sean Putney brought an Arapawa Island Goat.
According to Sean these types of goats very agile and excellent jumpers. They can easily clear a four-foot fence. It is believed that Captain James Cook brought these goats to New Zealand in 1777. They were used primarily as a milk goat but also for meat and hide.
