MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – Goat Island’s goats are safe.

While they were as stubborn as, well, goats, Goat Island’s residents were loaded into boats, then hauled off, according Geri Brown May, who helped organize the evacuation.

“It was so funny watching them yesterday wanting no part of being hauled off,” May said on a Facebook album of the evacuation in Murrells Inlet Thursday. Goat Island falls within Zone A, where an evacuation was ordered for noon on Thursday by Governor Nikki Haley.

Capt. Shannon Currie or Sport Fishing Charters and Capt. Kerry Gehman of Tailfinz Charter Service/Catch-1 Sportfishing helped with the effort, which May said could not have been done without them.

The goats were loaded up onto the boats, and then taken to a nearby barn where they will stay until the storm has cleared.
