MANKATO, Minn. (AP) – Mankato police probably never expected to get a call like this.

The 911 caller said two young girls, dressed in their pajamas, were out for a walk with a goat about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. The girls told the investigating officer that the goat lived in their bedroom closet and that they regularly took it out for late-night walks.

The officer walked the girls home and talked with the parents. The stepsisters, ages 6 and 7, had been at a birthday party at the Sibley Park Zoo earlier that day and came up with a plan to take one of the goats home. The Free Press says police don’t know how the girls managed to free the goat, which was returned to the zoo.
