July 2, 2015 REO Speedwagon is Pro Goat in Visalia!
American rock band REO Speedwagon played at the Fox Theater in downtown Visalia last week, and when confronted with the "great goat controversy", lead singer Kevin Cronin donned an "I'm Pro Goat" sticker and PROUDLY proclaimed himself to be pro-goat!
He was shocked and dumbfounded that an agricultural city like Visalia would deem miniature goats illegal, when major metropolitan cities like San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago and New York allow them as pets with no problems.
Susan Walsh and Urban Farmers for Food Freedom volunteer Rosalind Smith were able to meet Kevin prior to the show to pose with two miniature African Pygmy goats, with Kevin sporting an "I'm Pro Goat" sticker on his water bottle.
As much as our anti-goat, anti-majority opinion elected officials want to believe that Visalia is a sprawling metropolis unsuitable to these tiny adorable creature, it was abundantly obvious to this internationally acclaimed band that not only is Visalia a great place for miniature goats.. but it would put us in step with major cities like San Francisco that ALREADY ALLOW MINIATURE GOATS!
For those of you not in the know, REO Speedwagon is rock band that reached national fame in the 1980's. Over the course of its career, the band has sold more than 40 million records and has charted thirteen Top 40 hits, including the number one "Keep On Loving You" and "Can't Fight This Feeling".
