Thursday afternoon a goat named Wrigley trotted down Wilshire Boulevard with his 5 human companions who are on a 1,900 mile hike across the country. The group of Cubs fans hope their long walk with Wrigley will break the curse of the billy goat. Along the way, they are raising money for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
