Derby City’s favorite goat is now healthy enough to welcome visitors at his new home.
On Saturday, May 18 between 1 and 6 p.m. the public is invited to meet Houdini the I-65 Goat at Broadbent Wildlife Sanctuary, in Guston. That’s in Meade County.
Houdini used to live along I-65 in Hardin County, but when he was injured in a traffic accident in October 2018, Broadbent took him in and nursed him back to health.
His new home wanted him to feel at ease, so they added an I-65 sign to his pen, which he seems to like quite a lot.

“Houdini had thousands of friends and followers all over the country,” Broadbent Founder Mary Ann Tobin said in a press release for the event. “And we want to invite everyone to visit and celebrate his recovery with us.”
For those who want to visit the goat, it will cost $10 per car load at the gate.
And for the mega-fans, there’s a new Houdini t-shirt up for grabs for $20. Those who can’t make it to visit him can purchase a shirt online.
All proceeds from the event will go toward Houdini’s care as well as helping to benefit the other animals he lives with the wildlife sanctuary.
