ROUGEMONT, N.C. — The Durham Sheriff’s Office held an auction Thursday for a goat found wandering Durham that was never claimed.

The goat, which was named Billy Geoffrey Clyde, was found in the area of East Eberlee Street and Dominion Street in Durham on July 17. He was being held at Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary in Rougemont, N.C. while he was waiting for someone to adopt him.

Blind Spot partners with the Durham Sheriff’s Office, offering boarding for farm animals picked up by the deputies since their office is not properly set up to house them, according to Alesja Daehnrich, co-founder and executive director of Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary.

Animal Rescue Group Wants Your Old Bras To Help Save Injured Turtles

INDIAN TRAIL, N.C. (CBS Local) — An animal rescue group in North Carolina area wants your old bras. It may sound funny, but this is no joke.

Carolina Waterfowl Rescue caused a bit of a bruhaha on social media last week when it requested discarded bras to help save the lives of turtles.

It’s not the bra itself they want, however. They use the clasps to weld turtles’ cracked shells back together.

“It acts like a little fixator, it’s the eyelets that we need,” Keenan Freitas at the Carolina Waterfowl Rescue told CBS affiliate WBTV.
