Introducing Foles, the Nigerian dwarf goat kid

Visitors to Franklin Park Zoo’s Franklin Farm are noticing an adorable new face following the April 23 birth of a Nigerian dwarf goat. The kid, who weighs about 5 pounds, was named Foles per a Super Bowl bet between Franklin Park Zoo and the Philadelphia Zoo. A New England Patriots win meant that Philadelphia Zoo had to name their next born goat Brady, while an Eagles win meant we had to name our next born goat Foles. We made good on our promise, and hence a goat kid named Foles in Boston!
