SEATTLE – A goat abandoned in a Seattle neighborhood was rescued on Wednesday.

The white goat named "Betty White" was left in the Seward Park neighborhood. Betty was apparently left behind by a clearing company that uses goats to clear brush.

Ellen Felsenthal of New Moon Farm Goat Rescue and Sanctuary in Arlington saw the story on Craiglist.

She brought a pair of goats from her sanctuary to help get the wayward goat corralled.

"Apparently for these people, it wasn't worth their effort to make sure this goat was safe. They were more concerned with getting home I guess. So she's been running loose for about a week, living on whatever she could find, probably scared out of her wits," said Felsenthal.

Felsenthal said rescuers were able to bring Betty in Wednesday evening and she is now safe at the sanctuary, happily munching hay.

Felsenthal said Betty is skinny, her ears are full of thistle spikes, and her feet look like they haven't been trimmed in a year. She said Betty will get a "spa treatment."
