A Coffee County health inspector temporarily "closed" an Enterprise restaurant Tuesday.
The inspector found a goat carcass being processed in the kitchen of the El Patio Restaurant in Westgate Shopping Center.
Health department officials went to the restaurant after nearby residents reported seeing a live goat being brought through the back door of the business.
The meat was reportedly intended for use by the restaurant's staff.
The health department requires that all meat products in a restaurant have a USDA inspection mark.
The restaurant temporarily closed until the kitchen was sanitized.
After a second inspection, health department officials allowed El Patio to reopen.
