Houdini is a dad of twins

Houdini the goat, who roamed for years along Interstate 65 in southern Hardin County, is a dad.

Houdini, a resident of the 4,600-acre Broadbent Wildlife Sanctuary in Guston and his mate, Harriette, had twins boys at the end of April.

Broadbent announced the news Thursday in a Facebook post.

The sanctuary hasn’t named the twins and is seeking the public’s input in offering name suggestions. Those interested can post name suggestions on Broadbent’s Facebook page.

When names are selected, “whoever came up with them will be invited to visit Broadbent for a private tour and meet Houdini’s family.”

Houdini has been at Broadbent since January 2019 after he suffered a right leg injury in October 2018 from a traffic mishap near Sonora. He had been in the care of Hardin County Animal Care and Control since Oct. 21, 2018, before his relocation.
