SEATTLE — Ava is taking her fight to keep her pet pygmy goats all the way to the top — she plans to present her argument to keep her goats at a community meeting Tuesday evening.

The goats — 3-year-old Lilly Pad and 6-month-old JuJu — live with Ava and her parents in Federal Way. Ava, 12, says she’s never had a complaint about the goats, but last week Animal Control showed up and told her that after receiving some written complaints, the goats must go.

Now, she’s going to bring a PowerPoint presentation to the Federal Way City Council to show them that owning the goats is a positive experience and that they also make great pets. Ava hopes she can persuade councilmembers that anyone who wants to own two goats within city limits should be allowed to.
