A family with rural property north of Drumheller are about to get a boarder, and they eat practically anything.

Ken Richmond, who works for Freson Bros. in Drumheller, had his name drawn on Wednesday evening to win Chompur the goat in the Sea Cadets' 'Who's Got Your Goat' contest.

"Well, it was kind of like "I never win anything," he told Drum FM. "Of all the prizes to win, this is the one, I guess, right?"

"I said to the wife, I texted her and said you'd better go buy a lottery ticket," he added. "I haven't told my kids yet, so we'll have to see what they say."

The contest was a fundraiser for RCSCC Furious, the local Cadet Corps. People could pay to enter another person's name in a draw for the goat and they could also purchase goat insurance to take their name off the list. Richmond chose not to buy insurance and says he will probably keep Chompur.

"We probably will. We have a little bit of everything out where we're at, so we'll probably end up keeping it."
