Police say the goat was found and taken into custody after an extended search, countless calls and some help from a resident.
“The goat is resting safely in a pen in the police department garage. He’s actually pretty tame, but was obviously afraid,” police said. “We’re guessing the Chief’s probably filled with regret right now; this team is filled with big eaters.”
The goat will now be taking up residence at a Minnesota-based shelter for farm animals.MORE NEWS: Stray Bullets Hit Daycare, Multiple Homes In Brooklyn Park
