The getaway goat's name is 'Big Boy.' “He’s never done anything like that before,” his owner said when finally reunited with the goat.
“I think he was drinking too much that night. I’m really sorry it happened but there wasn’t much I could do. I wasn’t there.”
In an Ohio town, a teen got home from school last Friday to discover the family dog barking outside, and a sliding glass door shattered.
The kid's mom called the Ashland County Sheriff’s Office after they figured out a goat had crashed into their family home.
Keathley said she and the deputies called vets, animal control and the local Humane Society for advice. She said everyone laughed at them and they laughed too but they really needed help. Finally, the deputies decided to attempt corralling the goat out themselves. They tried tying a rope around its neck, enticing it with carrots, dog bones, grass.
At one point, the goat turned around and ran back into the bathroom. Eventually, the two deputies each grabbed a horn and managed to lead the goat outside and into the German Shepard’s cage.
On local Facebook pages, Keathley asked, “is anybody missing a ram? Please contact me ASAP.”
She said she didn’t want to include what the male goat had done in the post or else the owner might not claim him.
