Ketchem and Riley's efforts to keep their geese didn't work.
The city of Pretty Prairie says it won't amend its animal ordinance so the couple could keep their geese. That means Harry and Lloyd have to go.
Pretty Prairie's city clerk says the couple doesn't get any additional time to move the birds and that they are in violation of the ordinance right now.
(PRETTY PRAIRIE, Kan.)
A city ordinance says their pets have to go. Therese Ketchem and Dennis Riley have been raising two geese in their backyard since March.
Harry and Lloyd, as the birds are known, have become the Pretty Prairie couple's pets. "I got a hair brained idea and thought, I wonder what it would be like to raise geese?" explains Ketchem.
