Description

Elvira Schoonover with "Billy Goat". Picture taken where present Easter Seal Camp stands.

Elvira's husband brought home an orphaned kid goat one day and Elvira raised it on the bottle. It became quite tame but as it grew it became a loving nuisance. The Schoonovers didn't know where to put it until an ad for "wild" animals in a Vancouver paper gave them an "out". An answer brought the agent for a noble English lord to Schoonover Manor and soon Big Billy was part of the Duke of Bedford's estate.
